Hi all, I set up a group for 'Our sustainable society' (to be a sort of offshoot / outpost of Our society) on Wiser Earth before I got any indication that this ning-based network was going to be set up. If you're interested in any way about any aspect of community action for sustainability please join / connect (either here, Wiser Earth or link to whatever else you prefer).


Please feel free to share information about events via Our sustainable society calendar
