Provide knowledge and inspiration to enable action regarding sustainability to the (broader) Agile community.
The planet is facing many challenges, including war, hunger, the climate crisis, and the decline of democratic rights. All these challenges (and many more) are addressed by the United Nations’ seventeen sustainable development goals. Why is this important for the Agile community?
- The challenges are so existential, that they should be important for any community.
- The challenges are wicked and the Agile community has learned over time how to address the complicated, complex, and wicked problems.
- Agile comes with an expectation. For example, if a team states it is Agile, it is assumed that the team is also inclusive.

We recognize the critical role Agile can play in building a sustainable and resilient world. We believe by embracing Agile values and principles and by evolving our practices, we can address the complex challenges facing our society, economy, and environment.
Inspired by the Agile Manifesto and the contributions of Agile Alliance members, we are uncovering better ways of working by doing it and helping others do it.
