Latest News: Capital City Sustainable Partnership

Carson City citizenry has been discussing how we, collectively, can make our city a better place to live, work, and play. Solutions can come from many places, and we believe engaging all entities that care about sustainability, including our citizens, will lead us to better answers and deeper public ownership of our future.

When partners come together to accomplish collectively what they couldn’t accomplish individually, we create an effect greater than the sum of the individual impacts. To achieve the collective vision, we founded the Capital City Sustainability Partnership (CCSP).

CCSP’s mission is to ensure a sustainable society by educating, empowering, and engaging our citizens and community organizations-- to address environmental, social, and economic issues through a cooperative partnership-- for the benefit of the natural and the human environment.

Toward a Sustainability Community

Sustainability is a complex concept because its practices support ecological, human, and economic health and vitality. To execute this concept, one should understand the interdependency between community well-being, and a healthy environment and vibrant economy. Sustainability is the capacity for a society to exist successfully for the short and long term. To attain this, the society must plan for and manage the social and the natural environment to balance and support both entities; this approach can provide a high quality of life and still allow both the human and the natural environment to thrive for current and future generations.

Harnessing the Collective Vision
