The Page that Counts - Putting Issues Into Perspective

Positive Futures Network supports sustainable communities with information, tips, insights and facts that count!

Find green business solutions
It's difficult to keep a positive attitude when you research and write about problems every day. (And solutions!) It takes faith, hope and charity to work with minimal feedback or support compared to well organized corporations and governments. But we do it because we help as many as 20,000 individuals each month find one bit of information they need to make our communities smarter, greener and more sustainable. That fact does deliver some satisfaction!

We don't toil alone. Individuals and organizations continue to join the crusade of "eternal vigilance" that requires all of us to do what we can. One such organization is Positive Futures Network in Washington state.

Positive Futures Network is an independent, nonprofit organization supporting people’s active engagement in creating a just, sustainable, and compassionate world.

The Positive Futures Network (PFN) and its publication YES! magazine start with the belief that we need deep change if we are to avoid the breakdown of society and the natural world.

Millions of people around the world are creating the needed changes in their homes, communities, work places, and nations. Powerful innovations are taking hold within agriculture, businesses, criminal justice, schools--virtually every sector of society.

The work of the Positive Futures Network is to give visibility and momentum to these signs of an emerging society in which life, not money, is what counts; in which everyone matters; and in which vibrant, inclusive communities offer prosperity, security, and meaningful ways of life.
