kids-playing-in-fieldMission

The Sustainability Learning Centre is a learning, networking, and technology transfer hub that promotes a new sustainability paradigm, new models of collaboration, Green Core Competencies ® and “whole” employee engagement in business and the manufacturing supply chain.

Values

We are an ecologically intelligent, values-based group that operates on the “principle of abundance” and believes that “whole” employee engagement releases unimagined potential for “making a difference in the world” and brings forward an untapped capacity for innovation. 

A Reflection

(The following is a  poem by Tom Atlee and Joanna Macey from "Active Hope" by Joanna Macy & Chris Johnstone)

When you act on behalf
of something greater than yourself,
you begin
to feel it acting through you
with a power that is greater than your own.

This is grace.

Today, as we take risksbethechange6
for the sake of something greater
than our separate individual lives,
we are feeling graced
by other beings and by Earth itself.

Those with whom and on whose behalf we act
give us strength
and eloquence
and staying power
we didn't know we had.

We just need to practice knowing that
and remembering that we are sustained
by each other
in the web of life.
Our true power comes as a gift, like grace,
because in truth it is sustained by others.

If we practice drawing on the wisdom
and beauty
and strengths
of our fellow human beings
and our fellow species
we can go into any situation
and trust
that the courage and intelligence required
will be supplied.
