2017 Theme: Bridging the Gap

This year’s forum will focus on Bridging the Gap. Organizers will aim to feature topics that highlight approaches and strategies that catalyze local energy and sustainability action to close gaps in planning to implementation, data and technology, policy to practice, urban and rural, and more! For the first time, we are opening a call for session proposals to encourage participants to share innovative strategies and lessons learned that demonstrate how their agency is working to close gaps to save energy and achieve local sustainability goals.

Forum Organizer

The Local Government Commission (LGC) is a nationally recognized non-profit organization with a rich history of connecting leaders, advancing policies and implementing solutions for sustainable communities. For the last 35 years, the LGC has been at the forefront – identifying promising approaches and fostering persuasive models that can be replicated and used to inform public policy.
