Groundwork: this is under construction! We apologize for the mess. Please check back in mid-October 2017 for our new site!
Groundwork is a Colorado-based non-profit (501(c)3 pending) founded with the conviction that we have more than enough caring people in the world to make a positive difference in the realms of environmental sustainability and protection, social justice and equality. We believe that those caring people need three things to make a difference in their world: reliable baseline knowledge, tangible goals to work towards and projects that fit into their lives in a manageable way, and community to be a part of in their efforts. As an organization, we hope to provide these three things: (1) a base of knowledge and tools for analysis to understand what’s happening around us, (2) the means to act on both large and small scales in ways that make a visible and noticeable difference in the world and our communities, and (3) a community of like-minded people who can coordinate their efforts so that none of us feel we are acting alone.
Understanding What's Happening In The World
Building Environmental LiteracySolving our environmental and cultural problems requires a strong base in science and environmental studies. We need to be able to fully understand the far-reaching impact of our actions on Earth, the science behind solutions, and the kind of scale we are talking about when we talk about climate science, electric cars, or growing food locally.
