Conversations on Equitable Sustainability

Help shape a collective vision of equitable sustainability.

Collective Vision

Responding to the global threats of ecological degradation and climate change, sustainability is poised to transform social and ecological interconnections. Its solutions have the potential to change systemic feedbacks to empower and benefit all  communities. However,   there are many definitions for sustainability that lead to diverse goals and impacts across sectors. In some cases, sustainability is replicating disparities as it advances strategies that center the longevity of natural resources and resilience of current  systems while ignoring underserved communities.

Equity and Sustainability Consulting is organizing Conversations with sustainability leaders and organizers to shape a collective vision for how sustainability can uphold equity. The Conversations will be used to develop communication materials and inform reports for advancing  equitable sustainability. Their recordings will also be shared with the public if you are interested.

Our leaders and communities would benefit from learning more about equitable sustainability, so they can co-create solutions with their communities  for healing, connecting, and achieving  intersectional  change.

The conversations should not take more than an hour.
