A New Sustainability Organization

CSRWire has posted a press release announcing the Association of Sustainability Practicioners, a new organization that describes itself as
a community designed to work like the natural systems around us. It is shaped by its membership, leadership is shared around, and it is based on strong social contracts between members involving both a commitment of time to each other and a disciplined approach to learning and review.
While ASP isn't the first organization devoted to the subject, I'm already impressed that they understand that sustainability isn't just a concept that needs preaching, but also a organizational model. They've obviously incorporated the "learning organization" model into their mission, and I think that should make for a lively, productive community.
