Check out this great article about the “Solutions Movement” happening in Sonoma. I met the author, Michael Levitin, while attending the Sustainable Enterprises Conference.

Levitin quotes Gil Friend, chief sustainability officer for the City of Palo Alto :

“What we’re here to do is to transform the economy of the planet – and to do it in one generation. Cities have an enormous opportunity to drive this change [through] the policies and initiatives we enact.” –

Other movement forwarding developments mentioned in this article include: school programs to train kids in green jobs, and work to connect farmers with food systems and purveyors for mutual gain.

Those of us working in the industry have been searching for a better word or phrase than “sustainability” for some time now. Maybe that search is over? Read on and keep those solutions moving!
