Growing global economies and an increased dependence on resources have changed the way people live in connection with the environment. A rise in pollutants, toxins, and extractive industries are damaging the health of water, soil, and air. Indigenous and local communities that have lived in balance with the earth for centuries now find their cultures and the natural spaces they depend on under threat.
Global Greengrants Fund is the only organization in the world that places trust and decision-making power directly in the hands of communities to protect and restore their own land, biodiversity, water, and the health of their families. We listen to community needs and then invest in locally-led action to monitor polluters and demand the cleanup of toxins and waste, revive critical habitats, and protect air and watersheds for future generations.
