Total Community Health
Total community health is the essential intention of sustainability. The health of the places we inhabit is shaped by decisions we make about what to develop - when, where and how. All of the work in the Valley – whether it is focused on the land, the river, the wildlife, the people, or the businesses – must move us towards systematic well-being. We can no longer address environmental, economic or social challenges as specific problems. Instead, the work of the Valley will move us toward integrated life systems that promote the health and vitality of human beings, communities, businesses, plants, animals, and natural resources.
