sneak-peak-homepageAt NWEI, we believe the solution to many of Earth’s biggest challenges lies in the power of collective change: by taking action in our own lives and inspiring the people around us, each of us contributes to a world of impact. Over the last 20 years NWEI has helped nearly 145,000 people around the world make small steps that lead to big changes for our planet.

Today, on the day we celebrate NWEI’s 20th anniversary, we are launching new tools for you to create your community of change: a brand new website and online community EcoForum. All of our new tools make change even more social, fun and possible.  

NWEI’s new online platform will build a global network of people changing for good, connecting the many small communities around the globe who are using NWEI programs. This state-of-the-art online tool will expand opportunities for shared discovery and support.

Please visit our new website, explore our new course organizing support tools and share your stories of change and “aha!” moments today in our new EcoForum

In just over two months, we will host our 20th Anniversary Celebration here in Portland, Oregon. We know that the NWEI community spreads far beyond our hometown in Portland, and that there are people from across North America who will be celebrating with us in spirit. We have another way for you to get involved in the Celebration if you can’t attend in person too.

We are inviting donations to support members of our community who are “living lightly” and may not be able to afford a full-price ticket to the celebration. Students, full-time volunteers and those who are pursuing part-time work for example, will be able to attend our celebration thanks to the generosity of the NWEI community. We are collecting $60 donations, which will support two people attending the celebration at half-price, or one person attending with a full “scholarship.”

We will recognize all of the donors who sponsor a Living Lightly ticket at our 20th Anniversary Celebration and thank you for considering this opportunity to be involved in the event even if you can’t attend in person.  To make a tax-deductible Living Lightly ticket donation click on “Get Tickets” on the event website, or call me (Kerry) or Liz at 503-227-2807. Thank you for being part of NWEI’s celebration of 20 years of connection, reflection and action!

We are gearing up  to celebrate our 20 Year Anniversary this year. Our Anniversary Celebration will be Thursday, May 16th from 6-9pm at the LeftBank Annex in Portland. 

We will present two awards in honor of  20 years promoting leadership and sustainability.  The Change for Good Award  will be awarded to a business or organization that has worked to promote sustainability and provide leadership to other organizations, as well as standing out as an organizational leader. We will also present the Dick and Jeanne Roy Earth Leadership Award to an individual, in honor of NWEI founders Dick and Jeanne Roy. This award will be presented to a person who has worked tirelessly to enhance the environment, and whose work in the sustainability field has inspired others to take action. We look forward to sharing the inspiring stories of the nominees and celebrating with you throughout the year and at May’s event.

You can stay up to date with Anniversary party details at www.nweix20.splashthat.com. We hope you can join us on May 16th to celebrate 20 years of change for good!
