Resources and Training Materials

The GFSC online Library contains many articles, manuals, and workshop outlines. These materials are free to the public. (This is currently under construction)

GFSC continually updates and adds materials to include insights and perspectives from many countries and cultures. We develop new materials and workshops based on our volunteers’ experiences and research.


GFSC can connect individuals and groups with mentors and peers in similar situations to share experiences, effective tools and techniques. We also offer online discussions with experts in various topics.

Collaborative Opportunities

GFSC seeks opportunities to work with other organizations that advocate sustainable community development. By working together we share resources and expertise, support mutual goals, and increase public awareness.
