ERC Sun Valley: CEEchange PDF Print E-mail

CEEchange stands for fostering a sea-change of sustainability throughout the key, often overlapping dimensions of our community

  • Community
  • Economics
  • Environment

To help organize all the various efforts to strengthen our sustainabililty, the ERC has created this site to help both the community and those working on these issues. These are the core topics related to our sustainability:

Energy Food Economy
Recycling Health & Wellness Community Design
Climate Education & Culture Water
Land Transportation

The "tag cloud" on the left will help those working on and interested in these topics better organize efforts and find the information quickly and easily. "Tags" in the cloud that have the most information will have the largest font sizes. This "cloud" will continue to grow as this site does. To find out more about a particular topic or working group, simply click on their tag.

At present these are the various groups working directly on sustainability projects (know of a new group? send us an This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to let us know):
