"Scaling-up" the big ideas that you dream up in order to better the planet, is at the heart of what we do.
Formerly known as Grey Bruce Sustainability Network, we've got a new name, a new vision, and a new look, starting in December 2021. Before this big change, we have been putting together projects and programming since 2010 as an incorporated not-for-profit, and for years earlier as a community group called Grey Bruce Environment Network.
What began as a bunch of activists rallying for change has evolved into an effective accelerator for big environmental ideas.
We are here for you. Our board of directors wants to hear about any project you think would benefit your local watershed, tree canopy, shoreline, biodiversity/ecosystems, soil health, food security, climate action plan, transition to a green economy, climate justice issue, and/or biosequestration potential around us. Chances are, if it helps your neighbourhood be more resilient and connected, it can apply to the next neighbourhood down the county road.
In the 10 years we've spent focusing on programming and grassroots initiatives, not to mention consulting on environmental planning at the municipal and county levels, we've very rarely promoted ourselves or explained our role in the community.
Everything here is changing with the launch of The Sustainability Project. Feel free to contact us anytime and tell us a) what you did and b) how you did it, so we can share your story region-wide.
If you have a great idea that will create a better future for our region, we want to help you make it a reality.
