Sustainable Jefferson County's mission is to foster a vibrant local economy, promote environmental awareness, reduce our dependence on fossil fuels, and serve as a model of positive community growth by starting and nurturing new local community enterprises, by connecting people in the community with the many great ideas that are already in circulation, by leading efforts to change behavior in local institutions, and by serving as a living example of sustainable living to inspire our neighbors to makes themselves and their communities more sustainable.
We are guided by the Transition Movement, a vibrant, grassroots movement that seeks to build community resilience in the face of such challenges as peak oil, climate change and the economic hardship. It represents one of the most promising ways of engaging people in strengthening their communities against the effects of these challenges, resulting in a life that is more abundant, fulfilling, equitable and socially connected.
We believe that we can make the transition to a more sustainable world.
We hope that you will join us.
