Sustainable Northwest is proud to present:

The Cowboy, The Outlaw, and The Kid, a series of stories profiling individual and community actions in response to climate change in rural America.

This is a modern western. The individuals depicted are rooted in the epic landscapes and history of the American West, and are also a product of current times. These are stories that deserve to be told, as these individuals approach this challenge in a holistic fashion that integrates environmental, economic, and social concerns.

These snapshots portray rural leaders in a light that unfortunately few have seen: as the creators of innovative and feasible strategies to respond to the changes occurring in the landscapes and communities around them.
