At Sustainability Leaders Network, our mission is to enhance the capacity of sustainability champions who are versed in the practices of vision, systems thinking, reflective conversation, and creative expression. We draw inspiration, teachings and strategy from Donella Meadows, Buckminster Fuller, and others who use a systems approach towards sustainability. Through engagement of our Fellows Network, young leaders, aspiring farmers, and artists for sustainability, we build leadership capacity in people who are creating inspiring solutions for social and environmental challenges. By communicating what’s working and building on successes, we aim to motivate more people to join the sustainability movement and, in turn, increase and reinforce momentum for a better future.

The History of Well-Being Project
The overall objective is to perform a comprehensive, scholarly and practical documentation of the history of well-being that provides the basis for a better understanding of the current well-being indicator systems and supporting a reference point for future work and projections. The end goal is to develop a more holistic, dynamic and current definition (and model) capturing the essence of “human well-being” that serves the basis of future work in this area.
