Omega Center for Sustainable Living

Our Vision

We envision a world where all people can awaken their full human potential while caring for each other and the Earth.

The Omega Center for Sustainable Living (OCSL) demonstrates and teaches what is possible for our climate and communities through regenerative thinking and design. Our award-winning building, Eco Machine™, community organizing, and innovative educational programs offer visitors and students a path toward a sustainable, just, resilient, and regenerative future.

We recognize that the natural environment cannot be protected without creating social cohesion, economic stability, universal human rights, and a culture of peace. We are committed to developing paths forward by demonstrating actionable solutions.
