Sustainability is a complex and contested concept, but at its essence represents the hope for a healthy, just and bright future for us all. We offer Choices for Sustainable Living as an opportunity to move beyond the hype to explore sustainability more deeply. The course focuses less on defining sustainability than envisioning sustainability – what would a sustainable world look like? And how can we create it together?

Each category below is mapped to each session in your book, and contains actions for putting your knowledge into practice.

    I am extremely excited to let you know that I have made a downpayment for my allotment. I will need to plough it and it will be a lot of work but I hope to be able to grow a few vegetables before the winter.

    I have been living at my apartment complex for almost a year now and i have never talked to any of my neighbors. So, i decided to introduce myself to two of my neighbors that live on the same floor as me. I found out that my neighbor across from me was in the army for ten years and my neighbor upstairs is a teacher.

    I have been working on lowering my plastic bag usage by bringing my food in a reusable tote bag and having reusable grocery bags from Wegmans when I shop.
