Who We Are


ecoAmerica moves society toward climate solutions by inspiring and empowering trusted national institutions and their millions of stakeholders in local communities across America to visibly act and advocate. Our mission is built upon our commitment to Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion.


Ambition: Climate action and advocacy must include everyone, every day and work toward immediate comprehensive solutions, not incremental progress. We need to stop burning fossil fuels now.

Justice: If we solve climate challenges for the most vulnerable, first, we’ll solve them for all of us. Climate solutions are only effective when they address economic, democratic, health, and other injustices.

Restoration: We need to shift focus from mitigation to restoration in all climate solutions. Healthy nature can restore itself, heal the planet, and heal society.

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.
