Sustainability should start in the home -----right where you live. To do your part at home, remember that as much as half of all the energy used in your home goes to heating and cooling. Making smart decisions about your home’s heating, ventilating And air conditioning can have a big effect on your utility bills. Making smart choices in your immediate environment can help to defray energy waste –a plus for the environment, and keep your costs low –a big savings to your family’s budget.

The purpose of this campaign is to educate and inform the Kodiak community about how to reduce energy consumption, recycle resources and products and reuse rather than discard materials. Our goal is to define terms such as “carbon footprint”, offer useful tips for energy conservation that all of us can use, promote responsible use of our resources, offer suggestions for sustainable development and recognize national, state and most importantly local initiatives and programs addressing sustainability issues.

 

Sustainable Development: Sustainable development is development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs." From the time sustainable development was first endorsed at the UN General Assembly in 1987, the parallel concept of education to support sustainable development has also been explored. Research shows that basic education is key to a nation's ability to develop and achieve sustainability targets. Ultimately we believe a better educated community will better address it’s sustainable health for future generations.
