Our Mission

“We fought apartheid. Now climate change is our global enemy.”
Archbishop Desmond Tutu

SolaVida is a non-profit organization whose mission is to draw new constituencies into the crucial push for a deeper and faster response to the challenges of global warming. Given the scope of this unprecedented challenge to our shared environment, we need far more action by far more people.

We are working with state and national groups, developing projects that speak to new communities – encouraging people to reduce their personal and professional carbon footprints, and to become actively engaged in the push to create innovative and effective state level policy that will create a better way to power the world.

“Only that day dawns to which we are awake.”
Henry David Thoreau, Walden
