RUST – The Regenerative Urban Sustainability Training –

an intensive weekend workshop of skills for building ecologically resilient communities in today’s cities.

.

Challenged with both environmental and economic crises’, humanity must work to create an ecologically sustainable society.

This process of transition will necessitate that we drastically reduce our consumption of Earth’s resources, as well as recycle our waste products back into natural systems.  This work is especially critical in urban environments, where currently more than 50% of the world’s population lives.  To those not familiar with the fundamentals of sustainable living, the task of working towards it can seem daunting and confusing.

In this class, Scott Kellogg and other sustainability experts give attendees a “toolbox” of techniques and knowledge usable by anyone wanting to create sustainable systems in their own communities. Through a combination of group hands-on activities and lectures, participants will learn how to build infrastructure for self-reliance that is simple, affordable, and replicable.  These systems can be applied in either urban or rural environments.
