Change is hard. Change is uncomfortable. Change is also inevitable and necessary.
Engaging in sustainable practices is not the norm for everyone (yet!). It takes time to build awareness and new habits. In order to successfully implement change, stakeholders need to be consulted, engaged and educated on the new system that is being put into place so that they have buy-in, will be supportive and your new program will be a success.
Sustainability Plan development is a perfect opportunity to promote synergies between stakeholders, stimulate fresh ideas and strengthen relationships. Stakeholder engagement and education is a key element in the successful creation of sustainable businesses, municipalities and school communities.
When residents, business owners and school communities come together to share a vision of a safe, healthy, clean and resource-efficient city, all stakeholders can more clearly grasp the resulting economic, environmental and social benefits, and be more inspired and prepared to work collectively toward common goals.
