“EcoSTEPS is creating a global network of creative, energetic and talented people who work collaboratively and share a common vision of making the world a better place for all.”
Julian Crawford (EcoSTEPS)
"The attainment of a truly "sustainable world" is no small challenge. I do not claim to be an expert, and in the same way that you are, I too, am struggling to find answers to the sustainability questions. But, even though I have little idea of the path we will journey along, I am convinced that "sustainability", and its associated issues, is amongst the most urgent and important challenges of our time. This is not an occasion for sitting back and thinking "she'll be right!” These challenges demand attention... and they have mine."
