“Sustainability is a local and global endeavor, and our selection for this program out of hundreds of applicants is a testament to our innovative and collaborative approaches,” Coral Springs Sustainability Manager Andrea Lemaitre said. “I look forward to working with the four prestigious host organizations, representatives from Freeport, Bahamas, and other program participants to build strong relationships within the sector, learn and share best strategies and bolster Coral Springs’ interests.”
Launched at the Cities Summit of the Americas, the Cities Forward program was developed to support cities’ sustainability projects. Sustainability experts hope to solve critical urban challenges related to sustainability, inclusivity and resiliency.
Coral Springs’ participation aligns with the City’s strategic goal to be an innovative, high-performing and sustainable organization. It also supports the Sustainability Action Plan launched in 2022 to emphasize the commitment to enhancing sustainability through a multi-dimensional approach, including viewing sustainable practices through a global lens.
