This is everybody’s environment.
What We Do
Everybody’s Environment transforms organizations to effect institutional change through racially equitable leadership from our WNC communities. Everybody’s Environment is a collective effort by environmental and community organizations, colleges and universities, and government agencies (including the US Forest Service and National Park Service) in WNC. All are welcome!
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 people of color to enter into outdoor spaces and the environmental field during each stage of life from youth to adulthood.
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.
