Earth Child Institute
2.2 Billion: Power of One Child + One Tree = A Sustainable Future for All
Earth Child Institute is an international NGO committed to combating climate change, deforestation, and water scarcity by investing in hands-on environmental and educational projects with and for children, both in and out of schools. We engage with and support empowerment of the world’s 2.2 billion people under the age of 18 to facilitate the planting of trees and to ensure access to safe water, sanitation, clean energy, and nutritious food. We believe in creating new and participatory solutions for community-based sustainable development that will reduce risk and increase resilience to the changing global environment.
ECI’s mission is implemented through three key program areas:
International policy and advocacy: Influencing global environmental governance to acknowledge the rights, needs, and capacities of children in policies addressing REDD+, climate change, water, sanitation and hygiene, the green economy, and children’s environmental health.
Participatory environmental program development: Development of games, participatory tools, and other curriculum resources as well as training of teachers for implementation and use of these resources.
Global networking for implementation: Creating opportunities for youth leaders to engage with and empower children with life skills-based participatory environmental education through campaigns that yield meaningful and verifiable results, such as our tree-planting program: 2.2 Billion: Power of One Child + One Tree = A Sustainable Future for All.
