A Conservation Strategy

innovation, research

A good strategy lays out a roadmap to the future we want.

Here’s the one I wrote for the Conservation Council of Ontario (CCO) in 2011, drawing on the work and goals of many of Ontario’ top environmental and conservation organizations.

We Conserve: a Blueprint for the Voluntary Transition to a Sustainable Future” sets out the CCO’s mission as a catalyst for the voluntary transition to a conserver society in Ontario. It identifies challenge targets for each of  ten priority actions:

    1. Help Nature
    2. Save Water
    3. Save Energy
    4. Use Green Power
    5. Drive Less
    6. Eat Smart
    7. Waste Less
    8. Prevent Pollution
    9. Buy Green
    10. Live Local

The strategy laid out a roadmap for Ontario based on collaboration and voluntary leadership. It still stands as an example of what could actually be accomplished if we all worked together.
