CitySwitch is a connector that drives change – and this has never been more important than now. As we pull together to tackle Covid-19, we understand it’s not business as usual.
We’re proud of our strong network of CitySwitch signatories that shares information and supports each other to move faster and further together. Over the days, weeks and months ahead, we’ll be working hard to strengthen this network.
While there may be some changes as our states and cities respond in different ways, the CitySwitch program is here for you. Your program managers are already reaching out to signatories to check in. In the meantime, we’re ready to assist with your questions and connect you with the right support. As your priorities shift, let us know the resources you need and the gaps we may be able to fill.
The CitySwitch team will be experimenting with new channels to connect with you and share the stories of how you’re creating opportunities from obstacles. If you’ve got a story to share, please let us know.
As coronavirus changes the world, let’s use this time to start new conversations, test new thinking and connect with new communities.
Now may be the time to plan the next steps on your sustainability journey. This may mean working on a policy that’s been on the backburner, setting targets or devising a new strategy, or planning a new program that was impossible to implement in the busyness of 2019.
The Covid-19 crisis has shown us the power of people and the difference that communities can make when they collaborate.
Together, we can build an even stronger vision for sustainability post Covid-19 and create a better future on the other side. Sustainability is inherently future focused, so let’s keep looking to the future.
