The Wright depends on partnerships with community stakeholders in Detroit and across the great state of Michigan—indeed, across all of the United States—in order to realize its sustainability goals.

Read on to learn about the essential collaborations that help make the Motor City a more vibrant, healthy, eco-conscious city in which to live.

Community Partners

The Wright's network of community partners is as vast as it is diverse.

Recycling groups, food justice groups, young people's groups, civic organizations, local government task forces: we're bringing everyone to the table so that we can confront climate change and other detrimental issues directly, and effectively.

For our Ripple of Impact collaboration with the Michigan Science Center, The Wright was the recipient of the American Alliance of Museums' Sustainability Award, for "people-centered programs that engage museums and their communities in a dialogue on sustainability. [The Wright's] programs worked to shift from a self-described 'culture of waste' toward a holistic, institution-wide culture of environmentalism."
