Since 1993, NWEI has helped make change more possible, more social, and more fun by helping people connect with their communities and take action, together. Through discussion courses and the EcoChallenge program, we give people a framework to talk about our relationship with the planet and to share in discovering new ways to live, work, create and consume.

Currently, we are looking for two new individuals who will join the Northwest Earth Institute team. We welcome you to learn more and apply.

Our Commitment to Diversity

We are committed to the principles of equal opportunity and diversity and to attracting and supporting a staff and board who represent the rich diversity of the communities we serve. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religious creed, color, national origin, ancestry, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or mental or physical disability.
