Created by a group of third grade students (8 and 9 year olds) from Paris, this video explains what sustainable development means to them and works to inform other children about the issues. Focused on waste, food and transportation, the video focuses on a superhero (Ecoman) and a villain (Dump-it-man), making it perfect for kiddos (or anyone who loves comics).
Enjoy this post from the SSC Archives.
This video from Harvard Business Review introduces a methodology for helping you choose the best decision-support tool for your specific business situation. While the tool is not sustainability-focused, we found it fascinating to think about how to use a decision-tree model like the one presented for thinking about high-stakes decisions like:
Accounting for climate change impacts on capital investments.
Introducing new "green" products into the marketplace.
Rolling out a new telecommuting program.
Planning new freight routes for global distribution.

It may be getting chilly, but all the more reason to make plans to head to sunny Phoenix from February 26–28 for GreenBiz19. Join more than 1,000 of the world’s brightest thinkers and most influential sustainability leaders for the chance to examine pressing challenges, emerging trends and the biggest opportunities in sustainable business today. As a regular attendee put it, “GreenBiz is such a great platform for sustainability. Our team attends every year, because it’s a fantastic source of inspiration and an opportunity for problem solving.” Who can say no to that? The “best” rate is good until November 14 and the “fall” rate expires December 14. Don’t wait too long to make your plans!
