The Elders for Regenerative Living (ERL) Action Group addresses the broad question:
How do we live and act more sustainably in accordance with what our Earth home can continually support and sustain?
This is in response to knowing that if everyone worldwide lived and consumed as we do, it would require multiple planets. This lifestyle will not be available for our grandchildren and future generations.
As a team, we examine together sustainable living elements that have already been developed (e.g. co-housing, electric automotive transportation, low-meat diets) and others under development. We make incremental changes in our lifestyles as we gain knowledge relative to what is feasible for our individual situations. This includes working with others to transform our communities and to support government policies and legislation that address our need to evolve. Co-housing, urban gardening, community-wide transition to 100% renewable electricity, and developing a sharing economy are areas where team members are working at a local level
The Elders for Regenerative Living (ERL) group meets on the second Thursday of every month for our online meeting. Each monthly meeting will include a presentation that will provide us more depth about the given topic so that we can make smart decisions about what subsequent actions to take.
If you haven’t already done so, please sign up here to receive reminder emails for the monthly meetings.
Workshops and Webinars
ERL offers workshops throughout the year that further our exploration of regenerative living practices and actions.
