About Sustainable CT

Sustainable CT is a vibrant organization that inspires, supports, and celebrates actions that make Connecticut communities great places to live for all. We do this through a roadmap of sustainability actions, direct support and funding to help towns implement these actions, and a program to recognize the sustainability achievements of Connecticut towns and cities. From affordable housing to vibrant public spaces, walkable and safe roads, and support for local businesses. We help towns and cities improve the quality of life for all residents.

Sustainable CT strives to be inclusive, innovative, and collaborative.​ We are committed to equity, and to creating communities where all are welcome and have the opportunity to thrive. We recognize the natural environment as the foundation for the health and well-being of all people and the strength of the local economy. An independently funded, grassroots, municipal effort, our program is designed to support all Connecticut municipalities, regardless of size, geography or resources.

Created by towns for towns, the program is administered by the Institute for Sustainable Energy at Eastern Connecticut State University under the direction of the Sustainable CT Board of Directors.

Reviews

Fellow

June 2021 - August 2021 Waterbury, CT
“Overall, I enjoyed this fellowship and the range of what my work looked like! I learned a lot about the many daily operations of local governments and the role of Councils of Governments in Connecticut. It was a great professional experience to have been granted the trust to represent SCT and provide guidance to towns while still being in college. I feel more confident in my presentation skills. It was nice to be able to work with my hometown on this initiative as well, and I feel more connected to the region I live in and the different types of towns in Connecticut as a whole. It was also nice to have opportunities from SCT to provide feedback on improving the program, connect with an equity coach, meet the Board of Directors, meet some other fellows in person, and connect with a board member.”
