Sustainability Management Educator
National Center for Appropriate Technology ~ Butte, Montana
NCAT’s mission is to champion small-scale, local and sustainable solutions that reduce poverty, promote healthy communities, and protect natural resources. A handful of Montana communities have made strides to develop and institute Climate Action and Sustainability Plans, and many more communities have the ability to do so as well but require a catalyst. The goal of the Energy Corps member will be to research and refine best practices for developing community sustainability at the local municipality level. The Energy Corps member will develop a template for community sustainability, as well as develop sustainability tracking tools. As a result of the Energy Corps member’s efforts, interested communities will more easily be able to create baseline studies, draft action steps and take initiative toward comprehensive sustainability.
