Our Mission


ISEF is dedicated to the education, promotion, and sharing of research and solutions in sustainability and resilience, and provides a platform for such for educational institutions, public entities and private industries.  Connecting and educating all perspectives on education and sustainability and providing a resource in which all that knowledge is available to everyone is key to the mission of the Foundation.  These goals fall neatly into three categories and most cross all three areas.

International


We strive to connect the best in the world – sharing ideas and options across boarders and cultures. ISEF is dedicated to the education, promotion, and sharing of research and solutions in sustainability and resilience, and provides a platform for such for educational institutions, public entities and private industries.  Connecting and educating all perspectives on education and sustainability and providing a resource in which all that knowledge is available to everyone is key to the mission of the Foundation.

Sustainability


Matching skills and ideas with community needs is important to our work. These range from building practices, planning decisions, and energy use, to food security, water use, educational seminars and transportation solutions. We do this through workshops, partnerships, conferences, lectures, publications, and digital information sharing. By connecting people from around the world and around the corner with new – and sometimes old – technology and lifestyle choices we can make this a better and more sustainable place to live: for us and for the children who will inherit what we build.

Education


ISEF creates environments that enable learning through workshops, programs which extend over months, and through our publications and sharing of other organisations’ knowledge.  We believe that making education sustainable is a matter of looking at it from a different perspective and making it accessible and applicable.
