It is easy to feel that you’re the only one trying to live sustainably, but as you talk to more people, you’ll find that many of us are on the same path. We are all teachers and we are all learners, so share what you know with others and you might just be rewarded by discovering something new yourself!
The more we promote sustainable living, the easier it will be to build sustainable communities.
How to do it now!
Live a sustainable life. Walk before you talk, hypocrisy is a bad look.
Do what you can, when you can. Challenge yourself to do one extra sustainable action each week. This Guide has plenty of ideas to get you started.
Become involved. Local action groups are working towards improving the environment and sustainability. Stay informed about what your local community has on offer.
Spread the word. The more discussions, arguments and gentle cajoling we engage in the better. So do the actions to move yourself toward sustainability and then encourage others.

Why is this action important?
Many of us are simply unaware of the impacts our current lifestyles are having on the natural systems that maintain our lives. By helping to spread the word and encouraging others to take positive steps to move towards sustainability, you are helping to avoid the worst potential impacts of environmental problems (such as climate change and drought). Our future must be sustainable and in sync with nature, and we must start building this future now. Generations to come will thank you for it!
