About the CRS  --  Philosophy & Principles

Our core values are such that we operate under the following 5 principles and philosophies.

1.  Our definition of environmental sustainability is based on The Natural Step framework for sustainability.
2.  Applied sustainability means creating environmentally, socially, and economically sustainable solutions that are tangible and visible.  Sustainability needs to be seen, touched, and lived.
3.  Our focus is in rural, community, and grassroots settings.
4.  Our perspective is Global awareness, regional reach, local action.  We pay attention to global and national sustainability needs but focus on smaller scale solutions.
5.  We value intergenerational equity, especially to cultivate youth leadership.  Youth are involved in decisions and provided with opportunities to take part in sustainable solutions.
