Over the next five years, Daily Acts’ will continue to build community resilience and local self-reliance in Sonoma County by inspiring concerned and engaged citizens and leaders to conserve resources, while modeling practical sustainability solutions, personal leadership and a reverence for life.
Daily Acts will also provide targeted training and movement support for sustainability, permaculture and civic groups in the Bay Area and national Transition Network through spreading the Community Resilience Challenge, replicable program models, and leadership development.
By collaborating with 50 community groups we will inspire 150,000 resilience-building actions, support the implementation of 1000 programs while engaging 1000 partner organizations.
We will achieve our intended impact by:
- Providing the awareness, education and skills to motivate the greatest number of concerned and engaged citizens and leaders to be the change and take significant action.
- Creating, strengthening and sharing home, civic, business and school models which reduce water and energy use and waste by 60 – 80% while building soil, recycling rain and greywater and increasing the diversity of edible and multi-beneficial plants and animals.
- Deepening our impact in the cities of Petaluma, Cotati and Windsor and expanding programing to additional North Bay communities.
- Increasing community access to these solutions particularly for underserved youth and communities and schools by educating and or partnering with organizations who serve this demographic).
- Strengthening, celebrating and growing our homegrown groups and networks.
- Improving and replicating our programmatic models which create more engaged citizens and leaders while spreading home and civic models and civic policies that support these programs.
