On March 11, after much consideration, we made unanimous decision to postpone the Earth Day ATX festival. The lack of available testing, combined with the high risk to some members of our community, it was the only responsible choice.Two days later, we decided to make the most of our networks through Community Resilience Trust, an initiative we started to build collaborative strength in bringing equity and resilience to Austin's response to COVID-19. We have met as a collective every day since, this growing group of racially, culturally and professionally diverse leaders, with a commitment to make Austin the most equitable city, starting with the pandemic. At the heart of sustainability is diversity and resilience. At the heart of resilience is equity. See the link below or read our blog about it at The Austin Common.
Our mission is reinventing sustainability as an unprecedented cultural phenomenon with equity at the center. We provide a venue and a platform for businesses, advocacy groups, nonprofits, government organizations, and community leaders to connect with the public in the interest of sustainability, innovation and environmental justice.
While our flagship program is the Earth Day ATX festival, our greater purpose is to facilitate coordination among community stakeholders to develop and implement scalable, systemic, community-driven solutions. We serve a future in which Austin leads the way in systemic transformation toward a sustainable society for all people.
