Six Transformations to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals

From Sustainable Development Solutions Network:

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.

Routledge Sustainability Hub

Routledge Sustainability evolved from and incorporates the former Earthscan imprint and is a leading global publisher in Environment and Sustainability studies.  

An innovative knowledge centre for the global sustainability community, this Hub offers a wide range of resources about many facets of sustainability.  It includes resources by topic, sample chapters from textbooks, and a sustainability community section.


Technology is expensive and nonprofits can't afford many existing solutions or even realize that they need technology to achieve results. Core Technology Foundation, Inc. (CoreTech) has built an open source platform called CORE to help nonprofits build applications that easily scale to impact hundreds of millions of lives.
