(re)imagine your world
What is a sustainability solution to you? Locally produced food and goods? Energy-efficient and healthy buildings built from recycled and repurposed materials? A triple-bottom-line company that respects people, the planet and business? A city completely powered by renewable energy? What about an innovation that would allow nine billion people to exist on Earth? Finding solutions to issues this complex calls for many perspectives and partners. The Sustainability Solutions Festival convenes the planet’s top sustainability events and organizations for the month of February to discover and explore how we can individually and collectively reimagine our lives and our planet.
