The October 13 session addressed the issues of air, land use, material resources, and water. EnvisionATL II, addresses community vitality, energy, food, and transportation. EnvisionATL is presented by Sustainable Atlanta in conjunction with Mayor Kasim Reed and the City of Atlanta.
With numerous organizations tackling sustainability issues, a shared vision for Atlanta builds a strong foundation for future discussions and efforts designed to create a more viable, competitive and healthy Atlanta, which attracts employers and jobs to the city.
EnvisionATL forums:
  • Help create a shared vision for incorporation into the City’s Comprehensive Development Plan, scheduled for a 2011 update
  • Provide the framework for as many as 50 formalized partnerships between academic institutions, businesses, civic and environmental organizations, government agencies and other groups
  • Build a networked corps of up to 200 change agents and ambassadors of a shared vision
  • Identify metrics and milestones to measure and track progress to becoming a more sustainable Atlanta.
