The first webinar in a three-part mini-series, “Measuring and Scaling Sustainable Consumption for Cities,” begins with a report on a workshop held in Eugene, Oregon last month. The Role of Cities in Advancing Sustainable Consumption, sponsored by the Urban Sustainability Director's Network (USDN) and the Sustainable Consumption Research & Action Initiative (SCORAI) brought together city sustainability staff, leading researchers and practitioners, and other policy experts to examine how cities can promote sustainable consumption at the community scale.
