The Blue Ridge Sustainability Institute (BRSI) was founded in 2008 as a non-profit educational organization.
You have probably considered that anything which causes harm to the environment, to other people or to future generations cannot be continued over time. As families and communities, this means rethinking much of what we now call "sustainable." It means making our lives and our resources more secure by increasingly relocalizing our economy. This is the focus of our work at the Blue Ridge Sustainability Institute.
Americans are also recognizing the urgency of reversing climate change. BRSI is creating a replicable model of climate response and lifestyle equilibrium through our Climate Now program. To accelerate this process, our team of Research Partners is setting up a guest speaker program and outreach events to take the principles of sustainable food, energy, design, transportation and climate response into the community.
As a tax-exempt organization, the Blue Ridge Sustainability Institute will use all grants and other support to create and demonstrate innovative strategies for sustainability and climate response. We sincerely thank you for your tax deductible contribution!
