The IDEAS Hive is an interdisciplinary, inter-generational community Think + Do Tank designed to educate the public about sustainability and develop their ideas into local action projects.
The IDEAS Hive meets in communities to grow stakeholders and educate them around the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Through seminars, field trips, action projects, and film screenings, The IDEAS Hive is designed to transform communities to advance positive change.
The IDEAS Hive coordinates public EcoTours, EcoFilm screenings, and hosts free monthly community meet-ups at which subject matter experts present on various sustainability challenges both locally and globally. Sustainable development starts with issue awareness and education.
The IDEAS Hive brings together a cross-disciplinary, multi-generational group of community stakeholders to brainstorm solutions to sustainability challenges. Utilizing a Human Centered Design Approach, the Hive attendees collaborate on local solutions to community challenges with global issues in mind.
The IDEAS Hive then implements at least one solution per month through monthly Community Eco-Action Days. The IDEAS team then develops these projects, and advocates for sustainable practices. By aggregating the impact of local actions, the Hive becomes a part of the Global solution.
