Three recent reports provide positive reinforcement that traction on sustainability is building in the private and public sector. This news reenergizes our efforts. We live on hope that our combined efforts as sustainability champions will accelerate the take-up of environmentally, socially, and economically responsible strategies. Usually, during economic recessions, we lose ground. Strangely, in the current recession, the opposite has happened: sustainability-related strategies have been embraced more strongly.

Last week we reached out to our Twitter followers to tweet us about their favourite sustainability blogs. We threw in a little incentive and in exchange for a double entry into our contest (we were giving away a copy of Bob Willard's “The Sustainability Champion’s Guidebook” and a DVD signed by Mr. Willard, himself!) we received a list of your favourite world-wide sustainability blogs. We sincerely thank all of you that entered and shared your favourites with us.

All signs show that the sustainability challenge requires radical innovation and ‘thinking outside the box’, so what could be more appropriate than looking for lessons in space? Down to Earth - a Swedish ten-year initiative involving space agencies, companies and universities - is doing exactly that, and is now seeking interest from companies to participate in the next phase.

Vision 2050 is the World Business Council on Sustainable Development’s response to the global sustainability challenge. It lays out a pathway for arriving at a place where we are able to meet the needs of society within the limits of nature: in other words, sustainability. If you haven’t already read the summary report, I encourage you to do so–it’s fascinating and exciting, at a time when we could use both!
