Welcome!

New Pioneers for a Sustainable Future is a community non-profit organization founded in Washington County in 2005 to promote sustainable thinking and sustainable development in order to ensure a healthy, safe, and productive future for all.

Our goal is to engage our community to make choices and plans now that enable those who come after us in this beautiful place to have a wholesome and sustainable quality of life. Our local work is inspired by the Preamble to the International Earth Charter: We stand at a critical moment in Earth’s history, at a time when humanity must choose its future …

We must join together to bring forth a sustainable global society founded on respect for nature, universal human rights, economic justice, and a culture of peace.
