Tara DePorte,

We are social entrepreneurs who create and share innovative approaches to tackling social and environmental issues.

Our programs pair artists and scientists to engage new audiences in climate change solutions, bring youth to the boardroom, and get policy makers’ hands dirty as they care for local street trees.

We are action-oriented, and our passion is to help people make a difference, in their own unique way.

We know there’s a gap between knowing, understanding, and taking action. Our solution to closing this gap is simple:

We help people of diverse ages and backgrounds personally connect to the most pressing environmental issues of our times, and give them the tools needed to take positive, long-term actions.

Together, we:

INSPIRE new audiences to engage in social and environmental solutions through our Creative Communication programs

ACT and help you take action, while broadening your knowledge through our Learning-by-Doing programs

SHARE innovative ways to stay involved and build a community of change-makers through our Curated Actions programs

We believe our environment is not separate from our society, and that healthy communities, stable economies, and social equity cannot exist without environmental well-being.

We go beyond doling out information in hope that people will change. Instead, we inspire people to transform their behavior by making issues personal to their lives.
