Community leaders invited to draw upon experts

Bring the FAU Incubator to your community

The FAU Incubator for Sustainable & Resilient Communities is a program that provides mayors and municipal leaders in South Florida the opportunity to draw upon experts for creative and attainable solutions to local problems. The process allows community leaders a safe space to hash out ideas with input from our team of experts, who assist with visioning creative solutions and identifying next steps in resolving issues.

At the end of the process, the mayor and key leaders depart with the group’s short and long-term recommended actions, strategies for accomplishing those actions, and a renewed sense of optimism for implementation in their community.FAU delivers a final report and can meet with the mayor and city leaders to discuss next steps towards implementation.
