Grants to ecoAmerica
2015 (Duration 1 year, 11 months)
WASHINGTON, D.C. — ecoAmerica grows the base of popular support for climate solutions in America with research-driven marketing, partnerships, and national programs that connect with Americans' core values to bring about and support change in personal and civic choices and behaviors. ecoAmerica’s MomentUs program is a strategic organizing and communications initiative that uses local and regional impacts and preparedness to engage the American public in climate change mitigation. MomentUs is providing local leaders in health, business, higher education, communities, and faith with practical tools so they can address climate change and inspire others to action. Past support has allowed the program to reach a critical mass of leaders spanning multiple sectors of society that have previously been absent or have had limited efficacy in the nation’s climate debate. This award builds upon this momentum by ensuring MomentUs can deliver tools to these networks, support their climate action, and continue providing the MomentUs messages and tools to key sector leaders and movements across the country. The MomentUs program is helping to grow public support for climate action, which is an essential element of U.S. leadership on climate action, in the U.S. and abroad.
