Project: Ecology Project International (EPI)
Research shows that one of the most effective ways to protect the natural world is to build connections and meaning with students at a young age.

We developed curriculum, expanded the program to the Galapagos Islands, and ran a fledgling non-profit that now provides not only an applied education for high schools students, but cultural exchange and a safer, cleaner environment for both communities and wildlife where they operate.

We’ve heard about Pacific Islanders imminently displaced by rising seas, but limited news reports and even less research emerges from Latin America and the Caribbean regarding the impacts of climate change.
How can we use existing data to understand the vulnerability of the Baja peninsula to predicted sea level rise? Collaboration with local and international non-profits, academic institutions, governments, and local individuals was the key.
As Africa’s energy needs grow, countries look to develop wind, solar, and geothermal resources to build a thriving regional energy market. To promote energy access and lower energy poverty, we calculated the levelized cost of energy…
Kosovo, one of the world’s youngest countries, burns dirty lignite coal for electricity only a few miles from the capital city. These power plants are among the three dirtiest in Europe, increasing Kosovo’s emissions while endangering the health of its citizens.
New stories of climate change impacts and local adaptations emerge daily, both in local news and academic publications. Yet the local information and academic research rarely inform each other.
