Advocacy for Action

Advocating for policies, practices and action that build a sustainable Yampa Valley.

Throughout the year and across programs, YVSC advocates for policies, decisions and actions that promote low-to-no carbon, resilient and sustainable futures in the Yampa Valley.

Through white papers, public comments, technical reviews of government planning documents and discussions, YVSC strives to bring relevant science, technology and policy research into the service of decision-making and sustainable action. Though YVSC does not endorse particular candidates, we are committed to increasing public understanding of issues and platforms that facilitate more sustainable futures and utilize our broad base of community supporters to rally for action.
