Sustainable Cleveland 2019 Project

The Cleveland Commitment:
A Promise for Our Sustainable Future

VISION
We see a green city on a blue lake:

  • Where wind, sun and water are respectfully harvested for energy;
  • Where the natural environment is intentionally restored and preserved;
  • Where nothing goes to waste.

We see a bustling metropolis:

  • Where children are healthy and well-educated;
  • Where adults are engaged in challenging, rewarding and meaningful labor;
  • Where everyone is appreciated for their contribution to our collective growth and happiness.

We see a thriving economy:

  • Where wholesome food is locally grown;
  • Where businesses adopt sustainable practices;
  • Where personal drive and ingenuity are supported.

VALUES
The Cleveland Promise reflects these truths:

  • Our lake, rivers, and the land they define are the source of our physical, social and economic health;
  • We have, over many years, led in response to great challenges by joining tradition and hard work with innovation to create practical solutions.
  • Cleveland was at the center of the industrial revolution, and the time has come to embrace the sustainability revolution now unfolding before us.
  • We can create, produce, and consume in a sustainable way;
  • We can build a better future for our children, a future rich in happiness and a strong sense of community and a commitment to be faithful stewards for generations beyond our own.

GOALS
The Cleveland Commitment embraces these goals:

  • We will celebrate diversity and inclusiveness.
  • We will eliminate poverty and racism.
  • We will seek justice and promote safety.
  • We will foster spirited engagement in local, national and global commerce and exchange of ideas.
  • We will create vibrancy in the core community through regional cooperation, collaboration and interdependence.
  • We will inspire innovation, reduce waste, and create a competitive environment.
  • We will strengthen our economy, community and long-term security through sustainable practices that produce local food and energy, minimize waste, provide public transportation, promote community health, and support education for all.

PLEDGE: My Personal Commitment

I promise to be open to change and to challenge how I act, think and solve problems by

  • Listening, teaching, and leading by example
  • Asking for input from those not like me
  • Seeking solutions beneficial to all

I promise to consider social and environmental consequences before choosing to buy something; I will become aware of the consequences of my purchases by learning

  • what materials make up my purchases and belongings, and how they’re manufactured
  • How they are transported to me
  • Where they end up when I dispose of them

I promise to support a strong, sustainable, regional economy by

  • Doing my part to strengthen our community’s school system
  • Encouraging the recruitment and retention of sustainable businesses that invest in our workers
  • Buying locally from socially responsible farmers, suppliers, manufacturers, and vendors

I promise to reduce my carbon footprint by

  • Reducing, reusing, recycling, and composting, toward a goal of zero personal waste
  • Making my home, school, and work place energy efficient
  • Using energy-efficient modes of transportation

I promise to make a personal commitment to this compact by

  • Making these goals a part of my daily life
  • Celebrating small victories
  • Continuously re-committing to ever-greater challenges
  • Encouraging others to do the same

I, ___________________________________ , pledge to support
The Cleveland Commitment with my time, energy, talents, and
prayers, with gratitude for the abundance of my life, and in humble
acknowledgement of the resources with which I am entrusted on
behalf of generations yet to come.
