Ecostewards Alliance Charity Profile
EcoStewards Alliance promotes personal transformation through environmental awareness. Our discovery circles and other programs teach voluntary simplicity, deep ecology, sustainable living choices, knowledge of our bioregion and mindful, conscious living to restore and preserve the environment and enrich our quality of life.
All of our programs and events relate to our mission of "Awakening our selves, aligning with nature, one choice at a time" and as such are designed to help Bay area citizens slow down, look at how they would like to enrich and "green" their lives, and then make the choices they feel are needed to make that life a reality.
EcoStewards Alliance (ESA), was founded in 1994, and is a 501(c)(3), not-for-profit, grass roots, membership organization. Guided by heart, spirit, and intellect, it works to heighten awareness of humankind's interrelationship with all life and natural systems. Our mission is to "provide resources for and nourish growing communities of diverse individuals who are making choices that enrich the quality of their lives and restore and protect the local environment."
Our programs focus on reducing consumption and living more lightly on the Earth. The programs encourage individual choices aligned with personal and environmental balance that enhance our quality of life and support a sustainable future.
The Chesapeake Earth Institute is a project of EcoStewards Alliance. The Earth Institute is part of a growing national network of Earth Institutes offering study circles on a variety of topics using materials produced by the Northwest Earth Institute in Portland, Oregon.
