To Project TriStar, the term "lifestyle" means much more than simply living and working in a community environment. It means having an enthusiasm for life and the way in which people interact, support, and nurture themselves and each other in everything they do. This translates into an understanding that sustainability of the community can only be achieved if you first achieve personal sustainability of the mind, body, and spirit. The community lifestyle is designed to help people achieve continuous growth, healing, and balance both individually and as a whole. Project TriStar is an opportunity and a commitment to live more harmoniously and respectfully with each other and nature while inspiring members to realize their full potential. read more get involved
Many universities level schools around the world now maintain some form of sustainable curriculum. Although these programs and degrees are expanding to meet a growing demand, they are often limited to specific disciplines of sustainability and related degrees. Some programs also rely heavily on the application of technology to accomplish sustainable objectives. The University For Sustainable Living is structured to provide the most comprehensive sustainable education available while utilizing technology-based solutions only when the sustainable benefits outweigh more natural approaches. We offer degrees in every discipline of sustainable application, development and management, making it the premier university for acquiring a sustainable education. get involved
Project TriStar understands that every action (cause) by every member of the community has a consequence (effect). The most important understanding between each member of the community is taking personal responsibility. This means the thoughts, words, and actions of the individual are their personal responsibility and only they have control over them. Members of the community understand their every action affects themselves and those people around them, their family, friends, and in some way, the entire community and global consciousness. For these reasons, the community is founded on the principles of mutual respect, responsibility, and continuous personal evolution. read more get involved
The Project TriStar economic model is best described by the term "Compassionate Consumption" which is founded on the principle that members consume only what is necessary to maintain a moderate lifestyle and their services are respected equally to all others. With this model, every member provides their skills without the need for personal or material compensation. This model is about having access to all the essential goods and services without the need to barter, trade, or buy them. Members provide services with the only reward being a sense of personal gratitude and satisfaction that is experienced through service-to-others and commitment to a higher calling. It's about being conscious of selfless actions rather than unconscious of selfish actions. read more get involved
Project TriStar understands that management and leadership are not talents that can be given to any individual. They must be earned through years of education, experience, and developed natural talent. From there, success is further accented by the character, balance, and integrity of those who are placed in management roles. The leadership model is based on the concept that ideas and solutions flourish when they are discussed and reviewed by a group of like-minded peers. This is a group-based leadership model where community members participate in committees that are responsible to define, implement, and moderate the procedures and operations of the community. Oversight committees provide the overall project direction, coordination and vision. read more get involved
