Initiatives: The Innovators in Sustainability project

Community events become case studies as well as
high-impact broadcast and digital media

In fall 2013 we began an event and documentary series about how business innovators are re-shaping industry practices for the good of people, planet and prosperity.

These are stories about navigating internal conflicts and overcoming external barriers. From raising money to working with new materials – and from overcoming market obstacles to respecting (sometimes) outdated regulations – the innovators are building new models that change our communities and world for the better. We want success stories that others can learn from, and we work with local consultants to spot the best case studies.

The bigger picture

Community streams of the Innovators in Sustainability project are supported by The Vermillion Clarity Campaign, local leaders & civic programs. They add local perspectives to a larger global forum.
