On the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, our partners at Sustainable Space Station Shanghai celebrate by mapping out the numerous responsible hotshots and hot spots across Shanghai to help define what is sustainability. And how we as individuals, too, can behave responsibly.
We are ready for the launch — bilingually so.
Sustainable Space Station (SSS) is a seasonal experiential events project that unites sustainable leaders and brands to come together on a neutral platform to complement one another, grow and accelerate sustainable culture together.
Starting with Shanghai, and showcasing what the city has on offer, SSS is kicking off on this Earth Day by featuring a number of sustainable locations and brands plus a handful of responsible heroes to help define what is sustainability.

that we have, big and small, to change our lives and
change our world, not for one day, but forever.
Human health and planetary health are inextricably linked.
To protect one, we must protect the other.
Millions rallied behind this idea to create the first Earth
Day in 1970, and, 50 years later, we must rally behind it
again” – earthday.org
