The non-profit Blue Ridge Institute (founded in 2008 as the Blue Ridge Sustainability Institute) is a tax-exempt educational organization. Our mission is to develop and demonstrate an effective, community-based responses to climate change. This means moving in a new and exciting direction that can meet today's needs without causing harm to the environment, to other people or to future generations. It also means rethinking much of what we now call "sustainable."
The Institute is working to create replicable examples of lifestyle equilibrium and to support individuals, families and communities who understand the need for rapidly reversing our human impact on climate change. The Blue Ridge Institute will use all grants and other support to create and demonstrate innovative strategies for climate response and deep sustainability. We sincerely thank you for your tax deductible contribution!
