    Developing youth sustainability leaders of today and tomorrow

    Young people care deeply about the fate of the planet, its people, and their future. Given the opportunity, youth have great power to influence positive change in their communities. The IMPACT! Sustainability Champions Training program is a call to passionate, motivated youth who are looking for an opportunity to make a difference.

    In partnership with many organizations, The Co-operators and The Natural Step Canada are collaboratively offering the IMPACT! Sustainability Champions Training across Canada.

  • Organisations often struggle to translate their sustainability strategies into meaningful and practical progress. This can be due to a lack of visibility or understanding of the strategy, absence of engagement from key stakeholders or the lack of a systematic approach to managing improvement projects.

    ecoPortal was developed in New Zealand to help organisations overcome these challenges to effectively implement their sustainability strategy. TNS Accredited Associates Ian Challenger of Future Challengers and Simon Harvey of BusinessLab have partnered with ecoPortal to deliver sustainability services using the tool.

  • The theme of The Natural Step’s upcoming Accelerate conference is “Collaborating for Sustainability.” Over the past two years, we at The Natural Step have dedicated ourselves to better understanding what it takes to collaborate more effectively across organizations to bring about the kind of breakthrough results that can shift systems toward sustainability. Accelerate will be another chance to learn together on this topic.

    One thing we’ve learned is that systems change is unlikely to happen if we only collaborate with our natural allies. Instead, transformative change really does require understanding and working with those whose interests and perspectives are different than our own.

    Nowhere is this more evident than in the hyper-polarized debates about Canada’s energy system and response to climate change, arguably our most important sustainability challenge. My observation has been that while many people tend to lament the polarization, we also tend to go back to mostly working in the realms in which we are most comfortable, mostly engaging with people who share our views. What do we miss when we follow these patterns?
