This is everybody’s environment.
What We Do
Everybody’s Environment is a coalition of environmental non-profits, community-based organizations, colleges and universities, and government agencies in WNC. Representatives from each of these groups meet monthly to share ideas, learn new skills, and work together to effect institutional change through racially equitable leadership.

Build inclusive and equitable organizational cultures.
Everybody’s Environment recognizes that people of color have been historically and systemically excluded from outdoor spaces and the environmental field. We are committed to taking proactive and intentional steps, both as organizations and as individuals, towards making our workplaces equitable environments where all people can thrive.
Develop a Racial Equity Leadership Pipeline.
Through Everybody’s Environment, key community based environmental organizations will come together to create a solidified pathway through which we can provide equitable opportunities for youth and adults of color to enter into outdoor spaces and the environmental field.
Foster a learning culture and reciprocal exchange with communities of color.
Organizations involved in Everybody’s Environment will engage in the lifelong process of establishing relationships built on trust, consistency, reciprocity, and accountability with individuals and communities of color.
