Welcome to the Green Team Academy

Where grassroots movements come to grow!

Green Team Academy is a fiscally sponsored nonprofit organization headquartered in Denver, Colorado, and operating internationally. Our philosophy is rooted in the power and wisdom of a grassroots approach to change. We have worked with individuals and local organizations around the world to build stronger, healthier, resilient, and sustainable communities. We do this with our International Climate Action Challenge (ICAC).

What Our Challengers Accomplished

I was introduced to the Action Plan and learned that I do not have to be an expert in order to start a project. The challenge helped us make a big impact faster than if we had gone at it alone.
