The EIL envisions a world in which citizens care for one another and our common home. To achieve this, we strive to generate interest in environmental problem-solving, while prioritizing inclusivity, diversity and integration of perspectives and approaches to addressing climate change and our most urgent social and ecological challenges. We acknowledge the impact of human behavior in disrupting the delicate balance of ecological systems as well as the obligation of human beings to restore this balance and act as stewards of the natural world. We also recognize the intersections between poverty, racism, colonization, sexism, heterosexism and ecological destruction and believe that balance with the natural world cannot be resolved without also addressing social oppression in all of its forms.
