2018 Thematic Focus

Our 2018 Thematic Focus centers on the power of networks. The issues we face are large, complex social problems. These are not problems we can solve alone. Collective action through effective networks have demonstrated results, and many funders are turning to the power of networks to move the needle. 

Throughout the year, EEFC members learn together and support local convenings and efforts to advance this focus area. In May of this year, EEFC cohosted a convening of funders with Blue Sky Funders Forum:  Exploring the Power of Networks to Increase Equitable Access to the Outdoor.

We continue to learn from local experts about the opportunities and challenges in advancing environmental literacy goals through effective networks. As a result of this focus, we anticipate investing in emerging opportunities and sharing lessons with the field.
