You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.- Buckminster Fuller
Globally we as humans are going through a ‘Great Transition’. The systems and structures that our civilizations have operated from are going through a transformation that necessity is dictating – our survival and ability to thrive depends upon this change. The word ‘sustainability’ has been used now in so many sectors yet so many people are still wondering what that word truly means and how can they move towards creating a more sustainable personal lifestyle and contribute to their communities resilience.
The Rocky Mountain Sustainability Center is being established to not only help provide the Western Slope with opportunities and resources towards this goal but has a mission that will benefit our entire State and Nation. As a hands on learning center and demonstration site the center’s programs will be developed in ways that allow other organizations to duplicate in their own offerings.
