Ventura City Council adopts Net Zero Ordinance.

Achieving Real Sustainability

3 June 2015

West Ventura Community Council votes for water connection moratorium.

The Grandchildren are asking:

Will anything be left of Ventura for us?

Let's plan for their future too!

​1) Degrading and depleting the environmental system, over time, can not be considered sustainable;

2) There are natural limits to growth;

3) Limits are dictated by the environment, and thus human action must adhere to the carrying capacity of the earth's natural systems;

4) Because systems - environmental, social and economic - are nested systems, actions must be based on system's thinking which accounts for multi-level impacts (and the influences that generate impacts).

Save Our Water Ventura (SOWV)

is for long term environmental sustainability.


The society and the economy

can only survive

in a healthy environment.


Activities of the society and the economy should occur within the

limits of the greater environmental system and improve -not weaken - its quality.
