"I am taking my 6th trip with i-SUSTAIN led by its founder, the fearless Patricia Chase. They have been uniformly great. i-SUSTAIN’s trips are painlessly informative with terrific meetings with public officials, developers, architects, etc."
"i-SUSTAIN has influenced the design of Seattle in many ways. The exposure of decision makers to alternative and often superior design and public policy has produced broad dividends. In just one example, the recently completed 7th Avenue buffered bike line took direct inspiration from similar high quality cycle facilities in Copenhagen. More broadly, as an urban designer I can now draw on a wide range of design solutions that I would not have been aware of without participating in the i-SUSTAIN tours. Finally, the bringing together of key community leaders, elected officials and designers has in itself fostered important and potent professional relationships."
