An economically sustainable city supports a local economy that is viable, environmentally sound and socially responsible.

Sustainable Cities support citizens from all segments of the community to play a role in the future of their local economy.

Working at inter-agency level, business and government leaders, local non-profit organisations, and community development groups can determine local needs and resources and guide the economy.
