To help communities around the world address environmental, economic, and social challenges to build a better future shaped and shared by all.
We are in the business of unleashing the power of people to transform their communities. Our approach ensures solutions emerge from within the community, rather than being imposed from the outside. By sharing international best practices and experience, providing technical expertise and training, and building the capacity of local organizations, we are sparking creative solutions and lasting change.
Since our founding in 1991 by former Vermont Governor Madeleine M. Kunin and Founding-President George Hamilton, ISC has led transformative, community-driven projects across the globe. Over the years, we have developed an approach that supports a community’s ability to meet challenges head on.
