As part of the Detroit Design Festival, the Office of Campus Sustainability and US Green Building Council have partnered on Better Block Detroit, a community-oriented project designed to engage, reinvision, and celebrate the North End community. The Better Block project creates a pop-up community of retail, entertainment, restaurants, activities, green infrastructure and transportation design cues that highlight possibilities in a given area. Additional partners in Better Block Detroit include Vanguard CDC, Good Detroit, Rusas Printing, Tangent Gallery, Hopscotch Detroit, Detroit Reforesters and Michigan Urban Farming Initiative. 

Volunteer and vendor opportunities available.
