About Sustainable Capitol Hill’s Vision & Work

Sustainability means meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. We envision a sustainable Capitol Hill as a neighborhood with vibrant natural, social, economic, and built environments:

  • Natural – We envision carbon neutrality, clean air, clean water, and a healthy habitat in balance with the dense urban environment.
  • Social – We envision dynamic connections within the neighborhood that create a fun place to live with a strong identity and a sense of stewardship for the greater community.
  • Economic – We envision a robust and equitable local economy with a strong focus on local products and produce.
  • Built – We envision green and livable buildings, a lively pedestrian-oriented streetscape, and a variety of clean and reliable transportation options

As a dense and vibrant urban neighborhood, Seattle’s Capitol Hill is already a strong community with all the basic elements (compact living, transportation options, and a healthy local economy) that can make sustainability possible. Through education, organization, and action, we can make our neighborhood a model for a sustainable future.

Our primary offerings include monthly Meetups, the Tool Library and in the summer the Fruit Gleaning program.
