A brief description of the innovative policy, practice, program, or outcome :

• Jefferson Community and Technical College joined the Partnership for a Green City in 2012. It is the first of its kind in the country and represents a collaborative effort to improve environmental education, environmental health, and environmental management by four of Louisville's largest public entities: Louisville Metro Government, the University of Louisville, Jefferson County Public Schools, and Jefferson Community & Technical College. Together, the partner agencies employ more than 27,500 people, enroll 135,000 students, own more than 530 buildings, maintain 7,000 vehicles, and consist of 25,135 acres of land in Louisville Metro. The Partnership for a Green City aims to inspire and promote a sustainable green city through innovation, collaboration, action, and measurable progress. The Partnership for a Green City envisions Louisville as an innovative national leader for economic sustainability and environmental quality by making a long-term commitment to lead by example, educate, engage, and collaborate with the community.
