The purpose of the Returned Peace Corps Volunteers for Environmental Action (RPCVs4EA) is to encourage RPCVs and friends to create a community of concern and action about climate change and the critical need for clean water, fossil-free energy, and sustainable practices in our communities.
We intend to:
- create a community with concern for the environment and the implications of climate change;
- partner with existing groups and help amplify the climate change message;
- reach out to our neighbors, legislators, and business entities to take action based on concern for planet health;
- take time with ourselves and others to look at our own backyard in new ways.
Consistent with the Peace Corps approach, our intent is to identify realistic and concrete actions, and advocate for community ownership and legislative support for these actions.
As part of the united and vibrant Peace Corps community that is the vision of the National Peace Corps Association (NPCA), we support NPCA's mission to champion lifelong commitment to Peace Corps ideals. We welcome and encourage all in the Peace Corps community to join and engage with us, with NPCA and with other affiliate groups. Join us!
