GEN created The Solution Library, which is first of all a directory of solutions. This means that it provides short descriptions of sustainable solutions available on the web, providing links to more information. It is a place where solutions from all over the internet are gathered in one easy-to-browse platform to help create a more sustainable world.
The Solution Library envisions a world of empowered citizens and communities, co-creating their own pathways to sustainability in all four dimensions: environmental, social, economic and cultural.
The Solution Library has the mission of supporting this empowerment by providing a platform for sharing solutions and for building bridges, thus fostering international solidarity and grassroots co-operation.
