Sustainable Hudson Valley help communities, public agencies and civic organizations to accelerate their efforts for reduced environmental footprint and greater economic prosperity, by forming and supporting coalitions with training, technical assistance, and ongoing, flexible assistance. They design projects to inspire commitment and creativity by identifying "stretch" goals and creating strategies to achieve them. In keeping with their belief that people-power is the under-utilized secret ingredient in sustainable development, we focus less on policy and more on action-oriented education, events and projects that demonstrate new possibilities.
