Partners for a sustainable future…

green_buildingThe New Community Coalition is committed to identifying, coordinating, and implementing sustainability projects in Telluride, Mountain Village, and San Miguel County. We recognize community as the key ingredient in our quest for a positive vision of the future. The quality of interactions between members of our community—businesses, governments, individuals, and organizations—will define our ability to adapt to an energy-constrained future and the unpredictable nature of global climate change. By stimulating interest and dialogue in the pressing issues of our time, we hope to herald a new paradigm of interactions between members of our community. We envision community collaborations to increase our energy efficiency, re-localize our economy and food sources, develop a greener built environment, reduce our carbon footprint, and expand educational resources.
