Building a community where people and the planet come first.
Sustainacity is built around trying to help our visitors in their mission to make greener purchases and to lead a more sustainable lifestyle that doesn’t cost the earth.
Unfortunately, too often does global economic growth come at the expense of the environment and our communities. We all know this. But here’s the good news: things can change. And everyone can help!
The everyday choices we make all have impacts on our planet. We hope you will join us in learning more about how together we can take small steps to achieve this mightiest of motives. Let’s do this!
Sustainability and the UN Sustainability Goals
Sustainability can mean a lot to many, but at it’s core we’re talking about ensuring that as a global community we are able to meet our own needs without compromising the ability of future generations to do the same.
In 2015 all United Nations member states signed up to 17 Sustainable Development goals – a set of solutions for the biggest problems the world faces, including poverty, inequality, climate change, environmental degradation, peace, and justice.
We know that these goals feel big, perhaps out of the realm of influence for most of us, but by using the UN’s goals as a framework we at Sustainacity have adopted five that will sit at the heart of what drives us every day. Because together, small changes can make a big difference.
At Sustainacity we promote:
- Good health and well-being
- Reduced inequalities
- Climate action
- Life below water
- Life on land
