Our vision is that people in all communities will have a voice in attaining a healthy environment and just society. We affirm our interconnectedness of the human and natural world and take responsibility for inspiring change to create a society that equitably protects and promotes a healthy and vibrant environment for all people in current and future generations; and that respects all life on Earth.
Working in collaboration with grassroots communities, policy makers and researchers, the Center conducts research and provides community education on important energy, environment, and development issues – so that all members of society may effectively participate in public decision-making. CEED’s main focus is on developing effective and fair solutions to climate change, energy affordability, environmental justice, and sustainable development. We are especially concerned with ensuring that the voice of all communities, including Indigenous peoples, communities of color, and the poor are included in energy and environmental solution building.
