Promoting Sustainability in Dubuque

Running for mayor of Dubuque, Iowa, in 2005, City Councilman Roy Buol heard a message from constituents that he interpreted as a yearning for sustainability in the broadest sense of the word. As mayor, Buol launched Sustainable Dubuque, which partnered with IBM to use analytics and cloud computing technology to help the city become a model of sustainability that conserves both money and natural resources. Residents and politicians credit meaningful citizen engagement as the key to their success. Read more, and reflect on the conversation-starting questions accompanying “Smart, sustainable success,” written by Susan Flansburg for Faith & Leadership, an online publication of Leadership Education at Duke Divinity School. For additional insight, read the companion article, “How Dubuque embraced sustainability.”
