This group seeks out and shares ideas that inspire citizens to make and create sustainable consumer choices - global in awareness, local in application. Members believe that we are citizens first and consumers second; that our world is finite and borrowed from future generations; that we can live sustainably and in harmony with nature; and that inspiration is a renewable resource.
Mission: We promote citizen-driven leadership through sustainable planning and living in the Red Deer region.
Vision: We envision a community that is living sustainably.
ReThink Red Deer is driven by the energy of its members and coordinates its action around four key principles:
1) Smart Urban Planning
2) Waste Minimization (aka Zero Waste)
3) Protecting and Enhancing Natural Assets
4) Reinvigorating the Democratic Process
We believe in starting where we can - with our own lives, and our own community - Red Deer.
