About



We are a dynamic and passionate community group focused on sharing information, building community resilience, advocating for the environment and supporting effective action.

Our mission is to inform, inspire and connect communities to create a sustainable future and to protect our natural environment. Our preferred simple definition of sustainability is enough for all, forever.

Like many socially progressive community groups, we are convinced of the truth in Margaret Mead’s famous quote. “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.”
