After beginning a summer filled with urban gardening, community clean-ups, and “Motor City Makeovers”, HOPE4GREEN Detroit is now working on bringing more sustainability to Northeast Detroit by partnering with other nonprofits like Solardarity to make Northeast Detroit a better and safer place.
Detroit has 88,000 street lights and over 50% are non-working for either financial reasons, outdated equipment, or thievery for scrap metal. With a newly implemented public lighting authority over Detroit’s lighting system, this public service and resource will be come completely privatized. However, by bringing in and advocating for alternative energy solutions for lighting Detroiters will have the opportunity to own and cooperatively bring in sustainable resources back into the communities.
This project will be coming to Detroit soon!
