USA where the National Park Service is supporting a growing number of

Groundwork's purpose is "to build sustainable communities through
joint environmental action".
They do this by getting residents, businesses and other local
organisations involved in practical projects that improve the quality
of life, bring about regeneration and lay the foundations for
sustainable development .

The Projects of the Ground Work Trust aim to improve things in three

- creating opportunities for people to learn new skills and take local

- creating better, safer and healthier neighbourhoods

The Groundwork Trust recognises that people, places

inextricably linked and so aims to design projects that bring benefits
for all three at once. They believe this integrated approach is vital
if we are to bring about sustainable development - 'meeting the needs
of the present without compromising the ability of future generations
to meet their own needs'
