theArena17 – Beyond Green sustainability platform

Why theArena17?
The name was inspired by a speech “Citizenship In A Republic” by Roosevelt. The section below resonates as working in the sustainability field as well as developing a new product feels like being in an arena.
Also, its who join us in the arena to overcome the 17 sustainability challenges covered by the Global Goals. That’s why building a collaborative community is central to theArena17 project.

Excerpt from the speech “Citizenship In A Republic” delivered at the Sorbonne, in Paris, France on 23 April, 1910.

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”
