We believe that poverty is not a lack of money, but a lack of resources. We believe that you can give a man a fish and even teach a man to fish, but we must also ensure access to the lake. The sustainability dialog has to be expanded beyond windmills and solar panels to include the human resource. Can you have a sustainable community model if thousands of your citizens are effectively prohibited for participating in the local economy? We at Sustainable Alamance believe the answer is "No!". We also know that BOLD and INNOVATIVE thinking is required, to move beyond emergency relief approaches for solving chronic problems like chronic unemployment, hunger and homelessness in our community, to a more sustainable, developmental approach.
