Tools for sustainability transformation… for everyone.

CforST, in partnership with AtKisson Group, is making available the Accelerator tools — recognized globally as an effective way to engage people on sustainability — in a simplified format that anyone can use. (If you want to learn about AtKisson’s professional tools, which are used in CforST training courses, see Accelerator Pro.) Accelerator Lite gives you the essentials so that you can get started working with your classroom, your colleagues, or any other group, in education or non-commercial context. Available in a “free” or “fair price” version. See below for more details on these very popular tools.

Note: When you purchase Accelerator Lite at the fair price of US$59.00, you make it possible for AtKisson Group to keep providing sustainability tools free of charge to people who cannot afford to pay.

Accelerator Lite equips you with the Sustainability Compass for introducing sustainability and understanding its different aspects. With the Compass, you can help any group understand sustainability from a whole-systems perspective. The Compass Lite guide and presentation slides also include guidance on how to relate the Sustainability Compass to the new UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

You also get the popular Pyramid Lite workshop manual, for leading a group exercise to explore a sustainability challenge in more detail. The Pyramid workshop has been used around the world — in cities, companies, schools and universities — to help people quickly grasp the interconnected nature of sustainability challenges, and to develop ideas for projects and initiatives they can do together (or you can use it just as a learning and discussion tool).

Finally, you get the Amoeba Game, a short role-playing exercise on change for sustainability that has been translated to a dozen languages and used around the world. the “Amoeba” is a model for understanding how new ideas get introduced into a group, and the different social roles people play in relation to new ideas. They can help you introduce the idea of being a change agent for sustainability. And it’s fun!

What you get with accelerator lite

Accelerator Lite is not an “app”. It comes in the form of a .zip file with manuals in .pdf format, and slides in .pptx format (see sample images).

You can print out the manuals, or just review them digitally, and use the slides and images in presenting to a group. Your license conditions allow you to use these tools in any educational or non-commercial setting.

If you would like to use these tools in a consultancy or in a corporate setting, please upgrade to the full Accelerator — which provides you with many more tools and allows you to use them in professional sustainability work.

For an 18-minute intro to all three of these tools, watch Alan AtKisson’s TEDx Talk.
