INTRODUCING THE ‘GREEN CITTS’ PROGRAM
The Green CiTTS (Cities Transforming Towards Sustainability) program showcases the actions of Great Lakes and St. Lawrence cities in moving the entire region towards a sustainable future, and provides support to cities to go even further down the path towards sustainability.
The objectives of the Green CiTTS program are to:
- Protect Water Resources and Coastal Areas
- Promote Low-Carbon Energy Generation and Consumption
- Adopt Green Land Use and Building Design
- Encourage Green Economic Development
Through the Green CiTTS program, the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence Cities Initiative provides support to member cities to switch to more sustainable practices in twenty areas across a broad set of municipal operations and responsibilities (click on four areas, below). The current priority area is Sustainable Municipal Water Management.
