Our initiative borrows the concept of a triple bottom line from The Conservation Fund’s Resourceful Communities. The idea is simple: long-term solutions recognize the interconnectedness of ecological, economic, and socio-cultural systems.
Our Triple Bottom Line:
1 To increase the viability of traditional coastal communities by fostering economic opportunities that support natural resource-based livelihoods.
2 To cultivate healthy community ties within and between North Carolina’s rural and urban sectors.
3 To encourage an ethic of ecological stewardship that results in creative, community-based approaches to conservation.
