Goals / Objectives
The National Network for Sustaianble Living Education (NNSLE) improves quality of life and reduces environmental degradation by fostering new consumption patterns and sustainable lifestyles through CSREES Extension programs. Priority projects for the next two years are to publish a sustainble living guide, create a database of sustainable practices educational materials, and to develop a green camp certification program.
Project Methods
We propose to modify an existing Oregon State University Extension Service publication (EM 8790) on sustainable living. We will convene a NNSLE subcommittee to review, update and expand the publication's focus for a national audience; work with a communications specialist to edit and design both print and online formats; distribute draft copies to full NNSLE membership for feedback and review; post online downloadable document on selected websites; market publication online, and print and distribute hard copies to selected audiences. Since NNSLE members are scattered throughout the United States, we will use a combination of email, conference calls and the Breeze Teleconferencing System to put this project together.
