Members & Initiatives

Becoming a Member

Membership is simply the process of requesting to join our LinkedIn group - short URL - http://forum.SSBMG.com.

One of our community animators will approve your request.

You can ask our community animators for access to this wiki.

We like it when people introduce themselves in the LinkedIn group and tell us about  their practice and research related to our five streams of practice and research.

Group Members

The members of the Strongly Sustainable Business Model Group (SSBMG) (more info here) who have chosen to publicly mention their involvement in the group (group members please add / edit as you see fit):

Group Initiatives

In addition to sharing their practice and research at our monthly meetings, members join the group  to collaborate on one or more initiatives related to our 5 streams of research and practice.  All these initiatives are considered "knowledge mobilization initiatives of the the Strongly Sustainable Business Model Group, hosted by the Ontario College of Art and Design University's Strategic Innovation Lab (OCADU sLab)

Members are responsible for adding details of their work and the names of the members involved to this wiki so new and current members can find the people working on initiatives they would like to collaborate with.

See the Initiatives page, and the sub-pages below for each initiative.
