Our Approach

A Shared Ecosystem

We believe that addressing the climate crisis while building an equitable and sustainable world will take the coordinated efforts of all sectors of the economy; nonprofit organizations of various sizes, missions, and locations; and governmental agencies and representatives at all levels. Too often, these different spheres of society lack coordination and shared responsibilities, and it is our aim to use the public-private-partnership approach to create more linkages, conversations, and collaborative opportunities to reach climate goals while also lifting up youth and frontline communities.
