Mission Statement

Sustainability is the practice of conserving natural resources and protecting the environment in order to give present and future generations the highest quality of life possible. Sustainable Winchester is a nonprofit organization founded for the purpose of educating and raising awareness about sustainability so that residents, officials, and community organizations can be educated and empowered to take action in their day-to-day lives to incorporate sustainability into our community.

Description

The goals of Sustainable Winchester are to:

· Promote awareness of sustainable practices at an individual and community level and encourage Winchester residents and officials to use sustainable practices whenever possible.

· Initiate community-wide dialogue about sustainability.

· Serve as an educational resource by developing educational projects and campaigns as well as responding to requests for information.

· Assist residents, town government, and community organizations in analyzing and mitigating the environmental impacts of their current practices as well as planning to lessen future impacts.

· Undertake projects related to alternative energy, recycling, construction and building use, transportation, land use, water and air resources, ecology, and agriculture.

· Serve as a forum for community involvement in educational and cooperative projects.

· Participate in local, regional, and national sustainability campaigns.

Every step an individual or a community can take in protecting and improving the environment is meaningful. Everyone can take action in their day-to-day lives to work towards building a better future for our families and for future generations. Sustainable Winchester hopes to provide the education and impetus for Winchester residents to actively participate in creating change for a sustainable future.
