We here at Community Environmental Center in Queens are so very proud to partner with Sustainable Flatbush. You are a driving force in the Flatbush, Brooklyn community, helping families to be part of the Clean Energy Movement. CEC is inspired by the dedication of the many volunteers committed to this important cause and we look forward to working with you to create a sustainable environment for generations to come.

Sustainable Flatbush is the real thing: Anne Pope leads knowledgeable and sincere group of community of activists who are making real environmental impact in Flatbush!

Between sustainability programs that are promoted by City government or by citywide advocacy groups, and the countless neighborhood civic associations that have large networks but no explicit environmental agenda, is a terrain full of rich opportunities for creative collaboration. Anne Pope and Sustainable Flatbush are one of the City’s leading examples of neighborhood focused sustainability advocacy. I would encourage neighborhood groups everywhere in the City to seek inspiration for their own green efforts from Sustainable Flatbush.

Sustainable Flatbush is a vital part of the Flatbush community. It understands that a healthy neighborhood rests on strong relations among community residents, and its diverse projects enrich the quality of life in Flatbush.

Sustainable Flatbush is doing exactly what’s necessary to gain electoral support for the big societal changes. That is, they engage people at a community level–the level people can grasp–which translates into voters supporting energy and climate innovation.

Sustainable Flatbush is one of the best things that has ever happened to South-Central Brooklyn. Transportation Alternatives, city agencies, and locals depend on Sustainable Flatbush to lead the community towards better planning, greener technologies and a healthier population. They take global ideas and make them relevant and actionable.
Director of Environmental Campaigns
Sustainable Flatbush is a galvanizing force for progressive environmental change and awareness in Flatbush. Brooklyn Food Coalition’s Flatbush branch has worked closely with Sustainable Flatbush on developing shared projects, including educational events and saving the Campus Road Community Garden on the Brooklyn College campus. Students at Brooklyn College also see Sustainable Flatbush as a way to enter community-based work. Bravo to Sustainable Flatbush.
The grassroots enlightenment Sustainable Flatbush is doing in its community is urgently needed throughout the United States today. We need a better planet and Sustainable Flatbush is a vital part of that equation.

As an area resident and director of a BC program that teaches NYC public HS students about sustainability, I am fortunate to have a relationship with Sustainable Flatbush that has exposed my students to what “ordinary” people can do to make their communities better places and given them opportunities to intern in a dynamic and progressive environment.
