Our Vision: Island Communities that are self-sufficient; the local social and economic systems providing enough food, water, power and shelter for its population, who live in ways that preserve and protect the natural ecological system while respecting the diversity of lifestyles.
We aim to:
- promote community sustainability on Gulf Islands through public education and action oriented initiatives
- support individuals and groups working towards local sustainability to connect with each other
- report and improve upon local sustainability practices, and
partner with local groups, governments and other communities to implement sustainability initiatives
