Election results are showing that Seattle voters care about diversity and social issues, in addition to the environment. Social sustainability is the next frontier of the green movement. Social issues and environmental issues overlap in everywhere. Put another way, sustainability is everything, not just carbon and climate. Gender, education, race and housing are all areas that impact and are impacted by the environment of our planet and our how we treat our local and global community.

Join OUT for Sustainability for our 1st annual conference to discuss "what is social sustainability?" Speakers on 5 panels join us from the city, county and state government, local businesses and non-profits. The goal is to see how demographics and logistics intersect and impact each other, to build awareness into action. Seminars include:

1p Gender + Healthcare: Focused on access for women and transgender people
2p Age + Community: Focused on planning community for urban elderly
3p Class + Education: Focused on the impact of resource differences by area
4p Orientation + Family: Focused on the non-political side of domestic partnership
5p Race/Ethnicity + Housing: Focused on the debate between affordability and density
