The FAU Incubator for Sustainable & Resilient Communities
On April 25-26, 2017 CUES partnered with FAU's Center for Environmental Studies (CES) to offer the inaugural FAU Incubator for Sustainable & Resilient Communities. The cities of Hollywood and West Palm Beach participated, addressing concerns about flooding and aging infrastructure, connectivity and economic development. The FAU Incubator offers leadership and expertise based on best practices and provides guidance on developing implementable plans and policies. Watch the 2-minute video here.
The FAU Incubator for Sustainable & Resilient Communities is a program that provides mayors and municipal leaders in South Florida the opportunity to draw upon experts for creative and attainable solutions to local problems. The process allows community leaders a safe space to hash out ideas with input from our team of experts, who assist with visioning creative solutions and identifying next steps in resolving issues.
At the end of the process, the mayor and key leaders depart with the group’s short and long-term recommended actions, strategies for accomplishing those actions, and a renewed sense of optimism for implementation in their community. FAU delivers a final report and can meet with the mayor and city leaders to discuss next steps towards implementation. Download the 2017 FAU Incubator Report.
