Center for Sustainability Chair

Sustainability in public works today is as much about behavior change as it is about policy and procedure change. The APWA Center for Sustainability (C4S) believes public works can be at the forefront of positive change when it comes to sustainability. C4S creates education and increases awareness focused on building and maintaining infrastructure responsibly. C4S works across all technical areas identified by APWA to ensure sustainability efforts remain comprehensive. If you are passionate about sustainability in public works and are interested in joining our Knowledge Team, please contact the technical committee staff liaison at education@apwa.org.
