(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.
Mona is our favorite local celebrity chef who likes to connect her community through food that she makes at her restaurant and brings to events in and around her neighborhood. She has put together an activity guide filled with information on how to be sustainable in how you connect via transportation, innovation, communication and education.
