How we work
01
Knowledge Creation and Rediscovery

ACS believes the most important way to achieve sustainability is to educate ourselves and others around us. Education is key to creating change in any context. Without knowledge, there is ignorance, and with ignorance comes indifference towards the environment.

02
Mindset Change

Only educating the masses on sustainable practices is not enough. Simply feeding the information will not make any change until we also strive to change people’s thought process. Thus, changing someone’s mindset about why and how to be more sustainable in their daily routine will lead to more intentional and focused action on their part.

03
Behavioral Change

After educating the masses, and changing their mindset when it comes to living sustainably, the next step to tackle is quite literally their behavior. Behavior could include daily lifestyle, routine, actions – but without proper mindset change, these actions don’t become automatic. While education and mindset lead to indirect/gradual change in the sustainability habits of a large population, with behavioral change, a truly sustainable lifestyle can be achieved.

04
Building Local Leadership

preFor the personal/community level change created in the above areas to be propagated, local leadership has to be established to spread the word, to keep up constant encouragement and to cycle through the first three key themes/areas among more and more people to keep the sustainability movement alive.

05
Systemic Change

While each individual must ultimately be responsible for their own sustainable practices, bigger picture/top-down enforcement is also very effective. While all the other themes and areas are on a more personal or community level, this one goes all the way up to government and law- and policy- makers. The sustainability wheel can only fully/efficiently turn in the right direction (or turn at all) if all parts of society are on board with achieving the goals of sustainability
