Mission Statement

The Chrysalis Institute's mission has three mutually reinforcing goals. The first is to create educational facilities and programs to disseminate knowledge enabling and encouraging our society's transition from its current unsustainable paradigm to sustainability.

The second goal is to initiate or aid the creation of local earth friendly, sustainable business enterprises to provide alternative technologies and services in the fields of eco-friendly construction, power generation, waste management and natural healing practices.

The third goal is to support and co-ordinate a non-hierarchal network of business, institutions and interested individuals to create a community working together for mutual assistance, co-operation and economic sustainability (steady-state as opposed to growth) with the aim of spreading the elements of a sustainable local economy.

Description

The Chrysalis Institute is an organization dedicated to researching, developing and promoting local sustainability. We are located in Mariposa California just outside of Yosemite National Park. Currently we are hosting papercrete workshops where we show people how to make a low cost, environmentally friendly building material out of recycled paper. We are also working with Step It Up 2007 in hosting a climate change event here in Mariposa, to help bring awareness of climate change to our community.
