Our Mission .

Show all a region can do to reverse climate change, and protect people and nature from its impacts, through planning, policy, investment and the choices we make every day.

The Hudson Valley was a birthplace of the first environmental movement, linking land and water protection with economic prosperity.  The next environmental movement is all about people: how we live, work and develop our communities. This means re-envisioning cities, food and water systems, buildings and mobility so that people can lead more fulfilling lives and create economic opportunities as we actively restore our environment.
