Learn to harness the power of organizing

We already have plenty of solutions for the environmental problems we see and hear about every day. We even have a flood of people who want to be environmental lawyers, scientists or “green” entrepreneurs. What we need more of — what any social movement always needs more of — is people who know how to organize: to build organizations and run campaigns that inspire the popular support and political action we need to save our planet.
