Why We Do It
We believe that the residents of the community are most qualified to decide what would make their community greener and what type of organization can best accomplish that goal. We are here to help local people and organizations make that happen.
We believe that this planet offers all the natural resources that humanity needs, but we need to learn to live in harmony with nature in order to reap the benefits. We support projects that aid to create a more inclusive and sustainable home.
We believe that every person can step up and become a community leader and that every project has the power to grow, start a movement, and inspire others.
We believe in working with everyone, everywhere. We make an extra effort to reach vulnerable populations and communities that have been most impacted by environmental or economic injustice.
We believe that everyone is the expert in their own community and that they have the power to make it better. All they need is a little guidance, structure, support, and inspiration to take action.
We believe the key to transforming the world is empowering individuals to transform themselves, encouraging and inspiring them to take action, and thereby transforming their communities.
We believe that knowledge is power, and that shared knowledge is empowering. We seek to educate, learn, and facilitate community networking and story sharing.
