We bring people together, helping them catalyze positive change in their communities. They are empowered to imagine and do more.


We are testing new approaches that will make our communities more sustainable in fun and affordable ways.


We partner with many other nonprofits, businesses, and independent consultants to accomplish our work

Independent Neighborhood Groups

Seattle has neighborhood sustainability-focused groups, operating independent of Sustainable Seattle. We help foster cross-neighborhood connections by sharing stories in our newsletters and calendar announcements for neighborhood events.
