NERT Goals and Values

The following goals have been adopted by the NERT Network:

* Support Grassroots Groups by providing resources and inspiration to tackle issues like burnout, leadership and organizing challenges, and capacity problems. Help groups and individuals realize that they are not alone in this work

* Support Inter-Connectivity, both among grassroots groups and with other kindred networks, such as Food Solutions New England, Northwest Atlantic Marine Alliance, New England Local Energy Network, New England Grassroots Environment Fund, New Economy Coalition, and Transition US

* Articulate a Common Story that conveys our vision for a joyful, inclusive, equitable, and sustainable future, despite threats of climate change, resource shortages, and inequities

* Create a sense of “Network Self-Awareness” among resilience, Transition, and other grassroots groups in New England

* Become “more than the sum of our parts” in order to enhance the resilience of the region as a whole

The following values have been adopted by the Regional Organizing Committee:
