Doing Business in Birmingham
We are fifth and sixth grade students at Birmingham Covington School and we have been learning about how local businesses fulfill the needs and wants of the local community.Birmingham is located in the heart of Oakland County and has a population of approximately twenty thousand.It is important to us that we live in a sustainable community.According to the United Nations Bruntland Report of 1987"Sustainability is meeting the needs of the present without compromising the needs of future generations to meet their needs."This webpage is a resource for our local businesses to help them learn about the benefits of sustainability and the simple steps they can take to get there.We also have a honor roll page , which celebrates local businesses that are leading the way for Birmingham businesses to become sustainable.
