Our Vision

The West Kootenay region is the pre-eminent rural-Canadian model of inclusive and ecologically sustainable living. 100% renewable energy is in place in all sectors notably, transportation, buildings and industry.

Local food is affordable for and accessible to local residents and grown sustainably. The region’s ecosystems are thriving and protected. Oppressed and vulnerable people, and Indigenous Peoples and First Nations are engaged in local decision-making.

How we do it

We organize with our grassroots, community leaders, and advocate to our decision-makers on developing local social, political, and economic solutions to environmental and equity problems.
