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.
