Sustainability2020 is a GLOBAL collaboration – a global thinkery – bringing ideas and actions, tools and technology together with images and policies together at the LOCAL level. It takes the untapped power of the human mind and spirit and maps out a path to a world beyond OIL.
A community is a network of skills and talents.What is your key skill or talent that you would like to share?
It takes millions and millions of small incremental actions, developed into HABITS and taken each day, to create smart, green, resilient communities. It takes a global brain – thinking together on behalf of ALL life on Earth to create an energy future that is beneficial to all. Here is an urban Vertical Forest in China which cleans oxygen and also serves as an urban BIRD sanctuary. Here is the way the UK is changing human behavior, one person at a time.
