We are building the Regenerative, Sustainable Living (RSL) Action Group to address 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
We work with the Education branch to offer the on-line course “Choices for Sustainable Living”, developed by the Northwest Earth Institute. This is a highly interactive course, and participants often contribute additional expertise that adds to our knowledge base.
The Regenerative, Sustainable Living (RSL) 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.
Building on the Choices for Sustainable Living workshop, topics to be explored include food, water, energy, transportation, housing, consumption, sharing economy, and building vibrant communities.
If you haven’t already done so, please sign up here to receive reminder emails for the monthly meetings.
