Who we are
Sustainable Earth is a multi-media project focused on sharing sustainability with everyone. We want to demystify this broad subject with a variety of interesting sustainability focused content. Sustainable Earth shines a light on projects and people who are driving us towards a sustainable tomorrow. We want to demonstrate how making small lifestyle changes can positively affect our daily lives and our relationship with everything on Earth. Sustainable Earth is a collaborative effort, generously funded by Wells Fargo and developed by Arizona State University.
What We Do
There are small changes we can make in our daily lives that have a positive effect on our environment.
Many organizations recognize the need to do business in a more sustainable way. We provide free training modules to help businesses of all sizes make sustainability part of daily life.
We can always learn something new. We provide eduational activities and information for all ages. We even have games so we can have a little fun while we learn.
Worldwide, people are finding creative ways to improve our lives. Whether it’s using less resources, or changing how we do everday things. We share their stories because they prove we can do better.

Everyone can be part of the solution, if they want to. Find out how you can be a changemaker by taking action in the great sustainability challenge.
How is the United Nations working towards sustainability?
The United Nations has been encouraging member countries to take sustainability seriously. In September 2015, 193 countries agreed to adopt a set of 17 global goals to end poverty, protect the planet’s resources and improve equity for all. Officially known as Transforming our World: the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, the plan is spearheaded by the United Nations and builds on the Millennium Development Goals established in 2000.
The new goals call for action by all countries, poor, rich and middle-income to promote prosperity while protecting the planet. They recognize that ending poverty must go hand-in-hand with strategies that build economic growth and address a range of social needs including education, health, social protection, and job opportunities, all while tackling climate change and environmental protection.
Sustainable Earth proudly encourages the adoption of the UN SDGs. We will have the planet we want, if we all work towards these worthy goals.
