The IDEAS Hive

About The IDEAS Hive

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.

Due to the ongoing global pandemic, the IDEAS Hive is now a virtual online-only event, available LIVE on Facebook at facebook.com/ideasforus, every first Wednesday of the month at 6:45 PM EST.

Activities of The IDEAS Hive


Learn from educated speakers sharing information on the month’y environmental topic. These┬ásustainability topic cover local and global conversations all geared towards improving environmental public awareness in a fun, multi-generational environment.


The IDEAS Hive brings together a cross-disciplinary, multi-generational group of community stakeholders to brainstorm solutions to sustainability challenges. Enjoy engagement from the audience in brainstorming “breakout” activities to share ideas from all members of the community.

Take Action

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.
