OneSTL (a regional plan for sustainable development)

Over the last 3 years, a group of 11 partner organizations has been working together to produce OneSTL, a regional plan for sustainable development.  In addition to the project partners, more than 50 organizations, 200 committee members, and 2,000 public meeting attendees contributed to the plan. The result is a plan regional in breadth and truly comprehensive in scope.

However, OneSTL isn’t a typical plan.  Yes, there is a document that includes a vision, goals, objectives, and strategies.  But implementation isn’t just for one group or agency.  The intent is for anyone to be able to use the plan based on local conditions and to get involved with strategies or initiatives that line up with their interests and priorities.

The OneSTL plan is located on www.onestl.org. The website contains the plan in pdf and web-based formats, a Toolkit of Sustainable Solutions, a library of sustainability-related plans and reports, and a dashboard of indicators to be monitored. A second website created through OneSTL is Stlouisdata.org, the St. Louis Regional Data Exchange.  The exchange is an interactive forum for using and exchanging geographic data.  Last, but not least, the most important part of OneSTL is the people involved.  Through OneSTL we will create a Network of people and organizations that are committed to building a more sustainable future.

Everyone is invited to join the OneSTL Network.  Simply go here and register.  Anyone can join as an interested resident or as a representative of an organization.  The Network is intended to: build upon the partnerships formed to create OneSTL; recognize people and organizations in the region working toward sustainability; and provide opportunities to exchange information and collaborate.  

East-West Gateway Council of Governments hosts the plan, updates the onestl.org website, and is leading the effort to establish the OneSTL Network.
