Exploring where sustainability meets daily living
All over the world, people are coming together for a brighter and cleaner future. With the help of our global advisory group, the Institute for Global Environmental Strategies (IGES) and One Earth are examining how the way we live our daily lives – our choices, habits and the context within which we live – have can have a positive effect on our planet, our communities and our wellbeing both now and in the future.
From Monday 5th March to Friday April 27th we asked for help in learning more about the ongoing efforts toward sustainable lifestyles across the globe. We have now closed the initial round of the survey and three submissions were selected to join us in New York in July 2018 to present their solution at a United Nations event or another international gathering later this year. Details of the submissions will be shared in due course.
However, due to the strong interest shown and having received repeated requests, we have decided to extend the window until Friday 15th June for the opportunity to receive a small grant of up to US$2,000 to hold activities in support of sustainable lifestyles.
The questionnaire is available either via Survey Monkey or interactive PDF in the following languages: Chinese (Survey Monkey link, 下载中文版PDF形式的调查问卷), English (Survey Monkey link, PDF), French (Survey Monkey link, PDF), Indonesian (Survey Monkey link, PDF), Japanese (Survey Monkey link,PDF), Portuguese (Survey Monkey link, PDF) and Spanish (Survey Monkey link, PDF).
