Sacramento Youth Council for Sustainable Communities

SACOG Salutes! Award Winner Mary Brill Youth Excellence

The Sacramento Youth Council for Sustainable Communities is comprised of young people focused on promoting healthy and equitable land use, transportation and food systems and ensuring that youth voice and action are the norm of planning and policy decisions. The students have collaborated on design of complete streets at two Sacramento high schools, canvassed neighborhoods regarding the siting of a fast food restaurant, worked on community garden initiatives, and are working on a pilot program to test a cargo bike to deliver CSA boxes to low-income neighborhoods.
