Joining & Nurturing ASP
ASP’s mission to help shift behaviour from unsustainable to sustainable practices. We model our association on nature and this practical shift is the fruit we produce when we have a good growing season and strong roots embedded in the community.

How your money is spent
Money is a crucial nutrient — we don’t need much, but for a bountiful harvest we DO need some. The whole concept of ASP rests on the idea that our collective potential creates far bigger differences when we’re well connected. Connecting requires web services, company admin, social media, a bit of facilitation and some development support — all of which costs about £4,000 per year.
ASP exists to connect, challenge and support sustainability practitioners. The “challenge” could come from an awareness and ability to “sense” and embrace the challenge between the head and the heart, or between the status quo and what we dream of, or from being brave and welcoming the challenging of our views and assumptions. The three together — connect, challenge and support — offer many possibilities for growth, change and transformation; of us as individuals, as a collective and of the world around us.
We create learning events and other opportunities for people to meet face-to-face and online. ASP Members and Associates collaborate together on projects, proposals and as an informal support network generating ideas and guidance.
We offer two different relationships for sustainability practitioners: Membership and Association.
- Association: for practitioners who want to connect to others and share, learn and develop sustainable practices. Associates can connect to others via our Facebook and LinkedIn groups (Connect) and will receive our newsletter. Associates are invited to all our events and AGMs.
- Membership: Members have a deeper and more inter-active relationship with ASP and other Members and Associates. In addition to the Associate benefits, Members contribute to and influence our evolution, take part in ASP Projects, participate in our events and AGMs, where they can vote and stand for election as a Director. As a new Member you will be invited to our introductory on-line meetings with other Members and ASP Directors.
A donation of £25 per annum and above qualifies you as a Member.
To join and pay the £25 membership please select “Annual Membership“, followed by “Give Now“, below. (If you wish to join AND make an additional donation then change the amount to “£25 + Donation”.)
