The Value Louisiana Regional Sustainability Committee, along with other sustainability advocates in New Orleans, released the 2017-2018 Sustainability Platform and Vision for New Orleans in November of 2017. The Platform was officially launched and hand-delivered to candidates on August 31st at the August Green Drinks in Holy Cross, held in partnership with the Lower 9th Ward Center for Sustainable Engagement and Development.
Value Louisiana is an initiative of LifeCity that supports the development of a sustainable economy and growth of for-benefit organizations (sometimes referred to as sustainable businesses or social enterprises) in Louisiana. It is run by the Regional Sustainability Committee, made up of recognized leaders and subject-matter experts in our community who believe in political leadership that supports equitable business development and a sustainable economy for New Orleans.
The Platform asks that all candidates for local public office agree to our common values and priorities in support of leading our city toward a more resilient and thriving future.
