A New Concept: A Sustainability Incubator for Cities

While there are lots of incubators for startup companies to help them get their business off the ground, for the first time there’s an incubator that helps cities learn how to implement sustainability initiatives.

Portland State University has selected the first “class” for its “Urban Sustainability Accelerator,” a year-long program designed specifically for smaller and mid-sized US cities.

“Today, good sustainability ideas are abundant but many of them remain nothing more than recommendations in a report or a goal statement in a plan.  Our focus is on the implementation of the sustainability projects that urban areas have adopted and now want to implement,” they say.
