Sustainability Research, Reviews and Signposting
Education and Informed Decision-making.
Fundamentally, this is what it’s all about. Without the knowledge, the information, necessary to decide to act otherwise, to act in favour of sustainability, to act ‘planet-wise’, all other efforts are futile.
Why legislate if no-one cares because knows really why they should care?
Why finance if no-one on the other end knows what role the innovation/technology/product/service plays in the greater scheme of things?
Why do anything if no-one understands their role in the greater scheme of things?
Sustainability education and communication cut across social, economic and environmental sustainability. Education is at the core of a widespread awareness of our environmental impacts, and what lifestyle changes we can begin to make.
