A regional and shared vision for the future…
In May 2010 the Greenwise initiative was launched by Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson to convene, coordinate and align leaders in the region and establish a shared vision for the future.
At the time the region was facing significant challenges with rising unemployment and an economy that heavily relied on construction and government jobs–challenges that still continue today.
The Greenwise team convened more than 275 experts and community leaders during an eight-month initiative and identified challenges and opportunities through five policy committees: Energy, Green & Clean Technology, Urban Design & Green Building, Waste & Recycling and Water & Nature.
Together, Greenwise participants developed a powerful vision and thoughtful (and detailed!) Greenwise Regional Action Plan to grow our green economy, improve the environment and engage our communities.
