The focus is on you and your people because what people know and what people do are what really make the difference. Northern California Earth Institute (NCEI), an affiliate of the Northwest Earth Institute, offers eleven different model programs designed to jumpstart environmental awareness and action in our lives and in the workplace. The models have worked successfully for tens of thousands in schools, businesses, faith-based organizations, and community groups across the country. Small groups meet in self-run sessions, for just one hour each week (for 4 to 7 weeks), anchored in exciting articles, all of which are brief, easy to read, and geared toward action…even in the first week. NCEI will demonstrate the model and programs, help kick off discussion and action groups, help groups work together, and offer ideas for those important next steps unique to your organization.
