Abstract

As climate change worsens and continues to threaten our communities, cities are becoming hubs of sustainable development, aiming to reconcile systems with the triple bottom line of economic vitality, social justice, and environmental health and justice. Cleveland is one such city where attention to the concept of "sustainability" has birthed new and reinforced existing community-based, government, non-profit, and private initiatives. For my research, I identified networks between initiatives in order to visualize the themes, overlaps, and neglected sustainability elements of organizations and projects working to build the resilience and self-sufficiency of Cleveland.
