Regenerative and Sustainable Living (RSL)
We are forming the RSL Action Group to address the broad question: How do we live and act more sustainably in accord with what our Earth home can continually support and sustain? This is in response to knowing that if everyone lived and consumed as we do, it would require multiple planets. Our current lifestyle will not be available for our grandchildren and all future generations.
We will first learn together of RSL examples that have already been developed (e.g. co-housing, electric automotive transportation, low-meat diets). Our learning will be via monthly virtual meetings and occasional regional field trips. We will then set ourselves to make incremental changes in our lifestyles according to our new knowledge and what is feasible for our individual situations.
We will work to form regional groups of RSL-interested elders to facilitate local related events. We will post and promote our learnings and information on how to apply these to our individual situations.
Later we will explore prototyping some of the ideas that we have explored. For example, we may initiate or join an on-going urban garden or an “agri-hood” consisting of a small village connected to an acreage of farmland. We may create a local sharing economy.
This will be exploratory activity. Our goal at this point is to get our meetings set up and our conversation started
RSL meeting will be held the 3rd Thursday of the month
2 - 3:30 pm PDT 5 - 6:30 pm EDT
Our next meeting will be March 15th. If exploring this new venture interests you, please send me an e-mail note indicating your interest. (firstname.lastname@example.org).
We look forward to meeting and exploring this new frontier together.
