About Us

This website is linked to many ideas that originated at the Center for Sustainable Development (CSD) at the Earth Institute, Columbia University. The idea for this website came into being in order to cross-pollinate ideas across institutions and agents of change.

This is a common place to share ideas across countries.

Our contributors to the website are... (more to come!)
