See http://www.ecovillagenj.org"Phone Calls" are 1 hour, one-time calls with an organization. Learn the difference between volunteering on a Phone Call and a Project here.
Our mission, stated simply, is to assist communities in dealing with the impacts of climate change -- with education on issues that can affect their long term ability to regenerate their ecological and economic systems, to provide local government institutions with advice and assistance, and to provide small businesses and non-profit organizations with financial resources to mitigate climate change, especially in LMI areas.
In addition to our two primary programs -- PACE (Property Assessed Clean Energy) and alternative Regenerative Financing models, which are designed to provide flexible and attractive clean energy financing -- we have been extensively involved in efforts to develop new eco-communities, devise a global monetary policy and complementary currency for climate mitigation, and develop local green cooperatives to assist communities with creating greater economic resilience. We are currently a fiscal sponsor to three of these programs, and provide additional support in a variety of ways, including assistance with web sites, grant applications, fundraising, etc.
Thanks, enjoyed talking and you gave me some interesting ideas to follow up on.
It was a pleasure talking to Jonathan and learning more about his organization.
