Empowered planners creating sustainable, resilient, and equitable communities.
The American Planning Association Sustainable Communities Division (SCD) supports planners and related professionals in their efforts to foster a sustainable and resilient future. The Awards for Excellence in Sustainability honor those projects, policies, plans, and people who show exemplary leadership and inspiration in sustainability planning and implementation.
The method for announcement of the winners of the 8th Annual Awards for Excellence in Sustainability will be determined based on the final format for the 2021 National Conference of the American Planning Association in Boston. Regardless of announcement format, whether virtual or in-person, award recipients do not need to be in attendance to receive an award.
