Aiming for a Sustainable Heeley/Meersbrook

The meeting on 13th January 2009 discussed the aims and guiding principles of the group.

Draft Aims

We aim for healthier, happier, inclusive, creative and resilient communities, free from dependence on fossil fuels. We are motivated by the challenges of climate change and the energy crisis to engage as many people and communities as possible in Heeley/Meersbrook in the transition to a sustainable society.

Draft Guiding Principles

We embrace the following as guiding principles for our working processes
  • Being inclusive and open, avoiding all forms of discrimination, avoiding stereotypes, and reaching out to others to overcome divisions
  • Working in ways which empower others, by supporting consensus decision making, decentralising decision making to the most appropriate level, helping others to access good information, trusting them to make good decisions, and enabling sharing and networking
  • Building resilience (the ability to be self reliant, flexible and to adapt under stress)
  • Generating positive ideas and open possibilities rather than campaigning against things
  • Paying attention to inner world views and belief systems as well as external physical processes i.e. understanding the importance of attitudes and feelings as well as actions
