THESE SUSTAINABILITY MENTORS!

Congratulations on joining The Spring of Sustainability! You now have the opportunity to receive lifetime access to the inspirational insights, cutting-edge strategies and powerful practices from the 2014 Earth Day Celebration AND the 9-week Sustainability Action Program – to empower you in co-creating a thriving, interconnected new world!

Read the details about The Sustainability Action Kit below and click the “Upgrade Now” button to learn from green experts and visionaries who will help you take your family, cause, organization, community – and our planet – to the next level of sustainability.

Sometimes the path to a sustainable planet can feel daunting. It can be difficult to know which steps to take to see real progress. It can be challenging to foster sustainability in a culture where the dominant paradigm and systems are anything BUT sustainable.

And it can feel discouraging when you look at everything that needs to change to create a truly interconnected, regenerative and sustainable world.

You’re probably all-too familiar with the challenges that come with creating forward momentum in the green movement:

  • Disparate information about sustainability practices
  • Disheartening media messaging and propaganda
  • Conflicts within grassroots campaigns and organizations
  • Too much talking, not enough action
  • Loss of direction, creativity and motivation
  • Lack of interconnection and shared resources between noprofits/NGOs
  • Exhaustion from giving too much and seeing too little results

With The Sustainability Action Kit, you’ll discover powerful insights and practical skills to help you make your unique contribution to our world and transcend many of these common – yet frustrating – issues.

You’ll get inside access to the world’s leading experts in sustainable issues – and solutions – including green pioneers, innovators, activists, scientists, indigenous wisdom-keepersand enlightened business leaders. They will share their hard-earned knowledge, so you’ll have the tools to actualize your sustainability visions with more creativity, collaboration and success.

Perhaps more importantly, you’ll expand your sense of hope and possibility with real solutions and inspired offerings. You’ll be able to connect more with our beloved planet and ALL its inhabitants.

Whether you are simply looking to embrace a greener lifestyle or are spearheading shifts across the globe, the information and guidance in this series can be used by anyone and everyone. Whatever your level of sustainability, this collection can help you go further, drawing from ecology, activism sociology, psychology and new paradigm sustainability models.

We created this groundbreaking series to help you find the answers that work for YOU!

Subjects Include:

  • Changing the Dream
  • Feeding the World
  • Saving Our Vanishing Species
  • Ensuring Clean Water
  • Building an Economy That Works
  • Slowing Climate Change
  • Shifting Our Energy Reality
  • Transforming Corporate Control

BE EMPOWERED TO CO-CREATE SHIFTS IN SUSTAINABILITY

The Sustainability Action Kit is filled with practical tools and amazing insights to help you become more empowered to make your best contributions to the kind of world where people, other animals and nature can peacefully co-exist and thrive – in a way that truly honors our interconnectedness.

You’ll learn how to:

  • Successfully grow a green lifestyle, organization or movement.
  • Generate solutions using the principles of interconnectedness.
  • Foster collaboration, creativity and progress in teams and campaigns.

  • And much more...

TAKE THE FIRST STEP!

Remember the words Lao Tzu wrote thousands of years ago?

“The longest journey begins with a single step.”

That is still true today. We clearly have a long journey ahead of us as we come together to create a truly sustainable world. But if we’re going to leave a viable planet for the next generations, we MUST START NOW. We must take that first single step, and the next, and the next.

If you want to be part of the solution – and if you’re reading this it’s pretty clear that you already are – it’s time to take the next step.

You will find your next step in The Sustainability Action Kit. And the next, and the next...

With lifetime access to the leading-edge thinkers and pioneers in all areas of sustainability, you’ll get the information you need to make your contributions to sustainability in a way that makes your life – and the lives of others – more vital and meaningful!

We received hundreds of positive comments from listeners to previous years’ Spring of Sustainability sessions. Here are just a few of them:

Thank you so much for the innovative and extremely interesting series!

It’s inspiring to see such a practical, engaging, and compelling approach to this vital and complex issue. I believe this series will be a powerful contribution to the shift that is needed on the planet at this time.

Just a note to let you know how much I appreciate this forum, and all the work being done here. It’s been truly amazing, inspiring, uplifting, and just wonderful. So kudos to the Shift Team, and please keep it coming. But also let us know how we can help YOU. We need to give back to your Team, and support you folks. Let us know how we can support you more, and give back to the Shift Network for providing this forum, and for bringing us together to better do this important and wonderful work we are all engaged in doing for our shared future.

Listening to The Spring of Sustainability gives me much needed hope when I learn how many people and organizations, worldwide, small and big, are working to transform planet Earth through so many diverse projects. It encourages me to keep working in my own little corner of our sacred world. You inspire and combat despair by building community, by letting us know we are not alone in our own small efforts to renew and sustain our Mother Earth. Thank you.

Tuning in to SOS is a great way to hear from diverse experts doing very different work all under the banner of environmental sustainability. Before SOS, I had not heard of most of the participants or of the great works they were doing and it was very inspirational listening to them.
– Maureen

I continue to be impressed with The Spring of Sustainability series. As an expert on green marketing, I rely on the mix of practical and visionary to keep current in my field. Bravo!
– Shel H.

I love hearing from each inspiring leader that comes on the Spring of Sustainability. It is incredibly uplifting and inspiring to hear about success stories from around the world, such amazing work that I would never have known about otherwise.

SOS has inspired me to speak out for our planet. SOS affirmed my belief that there are many brilliant people with remarkable solutions to heal our planetary crisis. Their voices need to be heard.
