EcoLogic is a human organization. Our projects evolve organically by incorporating a diverse array of voices. We connect with communities by listening to people and co-designing solutions to fit their needs. Part of being an Campus Ambassador for EcoLogic is participating in this process by learning about the issues that these communities face and the solutions they use to address these problems. The project profiles below will introduce you to our work and the people we collaborate with, in order to give you a better understanding of how we create change on the ground.
Many of our project areas have experienced aggressive development that involves deforestation and the introduction of large-scale industrial agriculture. The places we work are also being affected by climate change and natural disasters. Some communities are recovering from political conflict, and many are marginalized for being rural and/or indigenous. Most live in poverty and have limited access to economic opportunities. All of these factors combine to limit their ability to conserve natural resources, and instead force many to engage in illegal logging, slash-and-burn agriculture, and other unsustainable activities. The profiles below illustrate these contexts in more detail, and show why we tailor-make solutions the way we do.
