The Economic Vitality Action Team

What is economic vitality and how does it relate to sustainability?

The Economic Vitality Action Team developed an initial set of agreements—principles that can serve as rallying points for developing the Corvallis economy to meet our needs and the needs of our ecological systems as this new millennium unfolds.

In our first effort, we have identified seven agreements.

  1. Demographic diversity
  2. Available jobs and meaningful work
  3. Recognition of limits to growth
  4. Local production and consumption
  5. Sufficient infrastructure
  6. Congruent culture and governance
  7. Proactive Ttransition
