Build Up Detroit
We envision Detroit as a vibrant urban center where all can thrive in economic, social and environmental health. The heart, pride and creativity of Detroit are the roots and catalyst for local and regional change.
Genuine commitment to environmental justice requires creativity, innovation and the willingness to reach across traditional lines.
Our mission is to catalyze a new development paradigm for Detroit that will ensure lasting and inclusive prosperity by:
- Developing a high-quality, skilled local workforce that is prepared for the transition from a pollution-based economy to a clean economy.
- Building youth and community leadership for community revitalization through education and participation.
- Promoting healthy, sustainable community and economic development through policy advocacy and technical assistance.
