An Inclusive Vision for the Next 100 Years of Conservation and Stewardship in America
The Next 100 Coalition was established in 2016 as a collaborative national network of Black, Indigenous, People of Color leaders from community-centered conservation, outdoor recreation, environmental education, public health, environmental justice orgs. Together, we work towards a shared vision of a more diverse and inclusive lands and ocean conservation movement.
We envision healthy waterways, lands, ocean, and coasts that are connected to and reflect the racial and cultural diversity of our country and their administration and stewardship demonstrates and values the myriad ways people connect to and care for the environment.
The mission of the Next 100 Coalition is to connect, amplify, and support the leadership of historically marginalized communities in the administration and stewardship of waterways, lands, ocean, and coasts to advance community prosperity and resilience.
In August 2020, the Next 100 Coalition announces its first Founding Board of Directors. Since then, we have expanded our board to nine individuals, representing diverse organizations that are based all across the country. Get to know our Board of Directors.
