Who We Are

ecoAmerica expands climate leadership beyond traditional environmental circles. We’re building a diverse network of major institutions and thought leaders in five sectors — faith, health, communities, higher education, and business — who have the power to inspire tens of millions of Americans on climate change, in counties and communities nationwide including our heartland. Watch these videos to learn more about our programs and hear our leaders speak.

ecoAmerica builds institutional leadership, public support, and political resolve for climate solutions in the United States.

We help national mainstream organizations elevate their climate leadership, providing them strategy, tools, and resources to:

  • Demonstrate Visible Climate Leadership
  • Empower Climate Literacy
  • Engage all Constituents
  • Build Collective Action and Advocacy

In two years, we help our partners permanently transform into national climate leaders who inspire others on solutions and commit to climate neutrality.

ecoAmerica’s mission to build public support and political resolve for climate solutions is built on our commitment to justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion (JEDI).

Everyone, Every Day

ecoAmerica Leadership Council is comprised of individuals who are climate activists and funders. They display substantial dedication to our mission of building public support and political resolve for climate solutions through institutional leadership, and play a vital role in the development and deployment of our programs.
