ASP exists to connect, challenge and support sustainability practitioners as we learn together how to move from unsustainable to sustainable and regenerative practices.
Our starting point could come from developing the awareness and ability to sense and embrace the apparent conflict between the head and the heart, or between the status quo and what we dream of, or from being brave and welcoming the challenging of our views and assumptions. The three together — connect, challenge and support — offer many possibilities for growth, change and transformation; of us as individuals, as a collective and of the world around us.
We create learning events and other opportunities for people to meet face-to-face and online. ASP Members and Associates collaborate on projects, research and safe learning spaces where every voice is heard and respected.
Our work is focused on the needs of the new generations, and those as yet not born. How can we support them, engage with them, to co-create a future that will be inspiring and full of opportunity? We welcome young people to join our community, to participate in all our events, so their voices can be heard, their perspectives and ambitions aired.
