Montmorency Community Group - Statement of Purpose
The Montmorency Community Group operates as a catalyst to bring together residents
and locally-based groups that share a common goal of building a stronger more resilient
local community. It utilises the Transition Town model to help create a community that
is socially, environmentally and economically sustainable, in the face of changes
brought about by climate change and peak oil.
It achieves this through:
awareness raising activities,
building strong networks to build an inclusive community,
undertaking practical projects to reduce our impact on the planet, and
promoting the well being of local residents.
The Montmorency Community Group is guided by principles of social justice, the
valuing of differences, a respect for all views and personal and community
empowerment, and principles embedded in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights
and The Earth Charter.
