About

Earth Island is non-profit environmental and social justice group founded in 1982. We provide comprehensive fiscal sponsorship and project support to a vibrant network of more than 75 activist projects in the US and around the world. In the tradition of our founder David Brower, we recognize and support the next generation of young leaders, and inspire people to get involved and take action.

Our New Leaders Initiative mentors young people and sponsors the annual Brower Youth Awards to recognize tomorrow's environmental leaders. We publish the award-winning Earth Island Journal to inspire and educate. And our new Earth Island Advocates program utilizes legal strategies to stand up for people, wild places, wildlife, and our hard-won environmental protection laws.
