Civic engagement is the encouragement of the general public to become involved in the political process and the issues that affect them. It is the community coming together to be a collective source of change, political and non-political.  Citizen participation is a process that provides private individuals an opportunity to influence public decisions.

Open Source Sustainability

"When a company, community or citizen wants to act to cut their footprint, reduce their carbon emissions or enhance their responsibility, they ask, “What can I do?” Until now, the sustainability community has answered, “Hire me.”

Sustainability is too important to leave to consultants making money by protecting proprietary information. The knowledge and tools needed to implement genuine sustainability should be available to everyone.
