Build Up Detroit
The vision behind Build Up Detroit is to see the resurgence of Detroit as a vibrant city where all can thrive in health and prosperity. When the three dimensions of sustainability - economic, environmental and social - are brought into harmony, environmental justice is achieved.
Genuine commitment to all three principles of sustainability requires creativity, innovation and the willingness to reach across traditional sectoral lines. Key to the success of Build Up Detroit is a multi-stakeholder advisory team that can guide this vision to fruition.
Our mission is to catalyze a new development paradigm for Detroit that will ensure lasting health and prosperity through:
- Green job creation and workforce development
- Civic engagement and education
- Sustainable development
