What does sustainability mean to you?

Nowadays, it means how well you adapt, overcome and persevere. It means the chance or opportunity to work on a better quality of life. And to give on. Meaning to offer or give something that will last almost forever, especially within where you live.

What has been your greatest experience working towards a more sustainable Chicago?

One of my greatest experiences is convincing area residents that it’s okay to do sustainable things like ride bikes, recycle, volunteer, give back to your community and to help it grow (without pay).
