Interweave is Sustainable Seattle’s community-led sustainability accelerator.
Weaving together collective impact and capacity building frameworks
for lasting, systems-level sustainability action.
Grounded in the Coast Salish creation story that teaches us that together, we can lift the sky.
Seattle is full of opportunities to support active community organizers dedicated to an equitable and sustainable region.
Facilitated by S2, Interweave is a collaborative and supportive program consisting of a peer-to-peer network of visionaries with unique-but-aligned methods for sustainability. Interweave weaves resources, support, collaboration, and capacity towards regional sustainability.
S2 provides specialized support through project advising, administrative services, and fundraising. Community organizers in Interweave can spend more of their time, efforts, and expertise focused on leading sustainability efforts in Seattle communities, and less time and resources in navigating administrative and technical aspects of the work that are often riddled with bias, unnecessary hurdles, and expensive specializations.
The following represents some (but not all!) of the organizations make up the dynamic and interactive Interweave network, led by and serving Frontline communities in Seattle and working in alignment towards a just, sustainable region for all. Interweave is currently full and not accepting new inquiries – but we love to meet new organizations and individuals aligned in our efforts to explore possible partnerships and collaborations!
