Theory, policy and practiceIn recent years there has been much talk of the need for sustainable communities. But what is a sustainable community? Why do neighbourhoods matter and why is sustainability important? What are the implications of debates around sustainability for community policy and practice?
salisbury lets
Local Exchange Trading Schemes (LETS) build local communities and the sharing of resources. Salisbury LETS members offer each other a wide range of skills and services from babysitting, cookery and curtain making to photography and proof reading. Services, skills and goods are advertised online in the LETS Directory (Offers & Wants). Some are exchanged purely for ebbles, our local currency, other exchanges involve part payment in pounds, where materials or parts are needed. Ebbles cannot be converted into pounds – it is a wholly different system – a resource pool.
climate works

The car club pays the insurance, repair bills and MOT – reducing paperwork and expense. hOURCARS has been operating in Salisbury for ten years and Salisbury residents who would like to find out more about the car club cars can get in touch with hOURCARS via the website at www.hourcars.co.uk.

SustainableEducation2015
We empower; we facilitate; we catalyse to promote the new learning required by all of us to live sustainably.

We know that sustainability (and how to live and work sustainably) is a developing area of knowledge and skills. Our goal is to keep people updated and thinking about good practice. Our policy work aims to share this practice and encourage supportive systems for educators to carry out this important work.
