When I started my own company, for the second time, I did so to pursue interesting consulting opportunities where I can make a difference through the passionate application of my knowledge on sustainability. My goal is to work in teams where all participants share this passion and want to build a more sustainable future.
I have also chosen to complete a Masters Degree with Royal Roads University with a focus on sustainability planning. As part of my major project, I will be completing research into how Canadian communities are implementing actions that support their visions of sustainability. Share the Wheel is a way to share what I am learning with sustainability practitioners in Canada and the world.
And what about the tag line? When I sat down to think about my core philosophy the tag line for Grant Consulting – Sustainability one step at a time – came to me almost instantly. It is a line taken from many hours of training, facilitation and community engagement sessions. To me sustainability is a long term commitment that we accept as individuals, as communities and as partners in our workplaces, schools, recreational groups, places of worship and other social networks. We need to know where we are going, and then we need to get on with implementing that vision, one step at a time. We need to look back and evaluate our progress against our vision, but ultimately we will be successful with hundreds of oars in the water, each one pulling us forward towards our goals.
