Our Approach and Mission

Promoting holistic climate law and policy solutions to attain long-term sustainable and resilient societies.

Our Story

We are a non-for-profit environmental Think Tank, with presence in Latin America and the United States. As climate policies are threatened by our political leaders, this independent non-political entity was born to provide climate legal and policy solutions to public and private entities who now face the obligation to lead the World in the climate change fight.  The new leaders need to have the proper tools to save and restore critical habitats impacted by climate change, including humankind.

Meet the Team

We are a group of environmental professionals and collaborators, who met while we were students at Yale University, sharing the same passion and vision for addressing climate change caused by anthropogenic externalities.  Our group brings expertise on climate legal and policy matters from Latin America (specifically from Colombia, Costa Rica, Mexico, Peru, Puerto Rico, and Spain) and the United States.
