Earth Day Soccer Classic

It’s time to play ball! Join us for soccer, solar and sustainability on April 12 from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. at the bi-continental Earth Day Soccer Classic and Earth Day Celebration featuring an all-day soccer tournament, solar cookout, live entertainment, hands-on activities, demonstrations and a chance to give back.

For those of you who have been following this story, you know that Green Living magazine is teaming up with Arizona State University’s School of Sustainability, Sun Devil Fitness and Tempe Sister Cities to bring you a soccer tournament that highlights the philanthropic work of Royal Philips and One World Futbol.

We hope all of you soccer enthusiasts have signed up to play that day (if you are reading this in early April, there is still time) and that you sustainability enthusiasts will be there as we celebrate renewable energy victories in Africa (specifically Ghana) and Arizona, Earth Day and pioneers in sustainable business.

We caught up with some of the players including a team of ASU MasterCard Foundation Scholars and a PhD student from Ghana. The ASU MasterCard Foundation Scholarship program awards students from Sub-Saharan Africa who come from the poorest communities and demonstrate exceptional leadership and academic talent. These students have served their communities and schools and have committed to return to Africa after attending ASU to further their positive impact.

Steps to Sustainable Management

By Anton G. Camarota, PhD

Sustainability management is a complex discipline. Leaders and managers who desire to create a sustainable business must include multiple aspects of business operations in their daily decisions. When a company wants to become sustainable, the first step is for the managers to move beyond the economically based goals of efficiency and growth. Taking this step, and the ones that follow, enables leaders to gain a wider perspective of organizational life. The difficulty lies with gaining an awareness of the complex forces that drive day-to-day operations. In order to appreciate these forces, leaders must be willing to expand their worldview to include social, technological, and environmental impacts.

By Taylor RichardsonEvan Strong wins the gold

Congratulations are in order to a former Green Living magazine cover star and recent Paralympic Gold Medalist, Evan Strong. Last Friday, the snowboarder finished in first place at the snowboarding cross race at Sochi. This was the first year that the cross race for snowboarding was incorporated into the Paralympic games and all three medals were won by Americans.

We first told Evan’s extraordinary story in our February issue. The feature spanned from his active childhood in Hawaii on his parents’ organic farm to his teen years as a pro-am skateboarder and his tragic motorcycle accident at 17 that took his left leg. After his speedy recovery and rehabilitation, which he credits to eating clean and staying positive, Evan began on his road to Sochi.
