The Mid-America Regional Council (MARC) will honor nine sustainable success stories to recognize great work in the areas of energy efficiency and conservation (EEC) and water quality conservation from across the region. Project honorees were selected through a Call for Successful Sustainable Projects. These projects exemplify great progress made in the Kansas City region and surrounding areas.
Forums to share local successes — and challenges — enable community partners to learn about and sometimes replicate locally tailored, high-impact sustainability practices in their own communities. Learn more about successful approaches for achieving sustainability and local progress in becoming "America's Green Region."
