Resource: The Sustainability Greenprint: A Handbook of Principles, Policies, and Players
Why This Resource Caught My Eye
Last September I attended the International Society of Sustainability Professionals conference, an inspiring, energizing, informative event. While on an ISSP-sponsored tour of Portland, I met David Hendrickson, a professional planner with a PhD in sustainability and a 25 year background in sustainable community development.
Throughout the tour, David asked some very interesting questions of the presenters. I immediately noted his grasp of the complexities inherent in this field shaped by multiple disciplines and organizations around the world.
Several months after the conference, David contacted me to let me know he was working on the Sustainability Greenprint. When I reviewed a draft to offer feedback and suggestions I was impressed by the clear, crisp descriptions of a wide variety of sustainability topics, organized in a thoughtful, meaningful way with valuable links to follow up information for each topic.
Who Will Benefit from This Resource
Anyone who is interested in the field of sustainability will benefit from reading this handbook. Although I’ve been reading about and making sense of the green / sustainable economy for the last five years, I learned a few new concepts while reading this handbook. Please take a look at this resource if you are:
- A student learning about sustainability in a graduate program or undergraduate program.
- An employees or job seeker who is new to sustainability.
- A sustainability professional who has been working on sustainable development issues for years
- A career professional who works with students or clients interested in sustainability careers.
