Agile Sustainability Initiative

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.

Stronger Together

Let’s increase the awareness of the challenges and also of the Agile community’s possibilities to make a difference – so, get involved! Sign up now!

Main Activities


Here to provide knowledge and inspiration to enable action regarding sustainability to the (broader) agile community. We plan to do this through:

  • Content
  • Tools
  • Alliances


Explore how we can increase sustainability both in and by Agile. We are planning to do so by a range of activities, for example:

  • Case studies
  • Experience reports
  • Skills network


The initiative will also provide guidance on how the Agile Alliance can leverage its influence on the Agile community. For example:

  • Agile 20XX
  • Education
