Sustainable Dubuque is a community-created, community-led vision for the future, and requires the leadership and engagement of government, businesses, non-profits, and residents to be successful. 

The Sustainable Dubuque Collaboration was created in 2011 to carry on the goals of the original Sustainable Dubuque Task Force, a citizen-driven process to create a sustainability vision for the community, and Dubuque 2.0, an initiative to inspire sustainability in the community.  Its primary purposes are to coordinate community education and engagement among partners committed to achieving the Sustainable Dubuque vision, and to coordinate efforts to collect data and monitor progress towards meeting community-created goals. 

The Sustainable Dubuque Collaboration creates space for public and private sector organizations, non-profits, and residents to share information and collaborate on projects, programs and policy that move the entire community towards our sustainability goals.  Each member is committed to the Sustainable Dubuque vision.

The Collaboration works to identify shared measurements across all participants and mutually reinforcing activities and practices continuous communication in order to move the community towards this common agenda.

Each member of the Sustainable Dubuque Collaboration is independently implementing projects that help to achieve the community-created vision.  This network is an opportunity for members to selectively address topics and work on projects that require cross-sector collaboration.
