Make Way for the Sustainability Generation!!!

Thank you to Elizabeth Ryan, Editor of the  Green Tie blog and the Manager of Interactive Media and Communications for the National Association for Environmental Management (NAEM) for posting this wonderful Q&A about “The Sustainability Generation”.

Elizabeth begins the Q&A with the following introduction, “For those who work in the environment or sustainability field,  recycling, water conservation and systemic thinking are probably concepts that follow you home at the end of the night. According to Mark Coleman, author of “The Sustainability Generation: The Politics of Change and Why Personal Accountability is Essential NOW”, it’s time to recruit new members to the club.

Achieving sustainability will involve more than just government regulations and green products, says Mr. Coleman, who is also the Senior Program Manager at the Golisano Institute for Sustainability at Rochester Institute of Technology. It will require personal commitments and community collaboration. We spoke with him this week to learn more about his new book and to understand how small actions by engaged individuals could add up to one big change.”

The National Association for Environmental Management (NAEM) is a professional association that empowers corporate  leaders to advance environmental stewardship, create safe and healthy  workplaces, and promote global sustainability. We provide peer-led educational  conferences, benchmarking research and an active community for sharing solutions  to today’s corporate EHS and sustainability management challenges.
