For decades, coal has been king in central Appalachia. The people of this region have devoted their lives providing energy to the nation, fueling the first and second industrial revolution and providing nearly 40% of the energy used in this country. As a result of Lyndon Johnson's War on Poverty and top-down strategies for poverty relief, our communities have struggled to transcend government based strategies. It is our hope through the campaign that we can redefine the term sustainability by demonstrating that any approach to sustainable development has to begin with the free-market - we call it applied sustainability.

Sustainable Pike County is part of a growing CASE Network--Central Appalachia Sustainable Economies Network--that is working to encourage healthy living by providing new economic opportunities for businesses, creating a strong workforce with competitive skills sets, growing local food systems to encourage healthy living, and increasing the quality of life for our community, all through a spirit of cooperation and unity.

We are working with Sustainable Williamson with a stated goal to create a replicable model of market-based sustainability for the economically distressed communities throughout Central Appalachia. We believe it is time to redefine the economic landscape of coal country, and together, our vision is to spark a Collaboration Across the Nation for applied sustainable development to create a better world.
