The Rocky Mountain Sustainability Center (RMSC) is headquartered on the Western Slope of Colorado in the Uncompahgre Valley.   Our current focus in on facilitating and assisting projects and programs within the State of Colorado that develop and foster regional sustainability strategies and agendas.  Coalition building and cooperative efforts are necessary and our team is dedicated to lending our energy and resources towards collective goals that help build healthy and thriving communities in our beautiful State.

Our current flagship project is developing a Sustainable Community Development Certification Program.  We are seeking partners and educators who can assist in the creation of the in depth and multi-location curriculum that will give future students the highest quality education and experiences.  Please contact us if you are interested in learning more and participating in this project.

This video provides a basic definition of sustainability. You’ve probably heard the term “sustainability” in some context or another. It is likely that you’ve used some product or service that was labeled as sustainable, or perhaps you are aware of a campus or civic organization that focuses on sustainability. You may recognize that sustainability has to do with preserving or maintaining resources—we often associate sustainability with things like recycling, using renewable energy sources like solar and wind power, and preserving natural spaces like rainforests and coral reefs. However, unless you have an inherent interest in sustainability, you probably haven’t thought much about what the term actually means.
