Sustainable Communities Leadership Academy (SCLA)

The SCLA program is a series of intensive, peer-learning and training workshops that advance, accelerate, and scale-up urban climate and sustainability solutions. Cross-sector, multi-stakeholder teams of practitioners from 8-12 cities attend these individually tailored sessions to share best practices and learn from experts on topics such as transportation, infrastructure services, food systems, adaptation and resilience, green infrastructure, energy efficiency and skills building.
