“Despite amazing success and decades of environmental progress, we find ourselves facing an even more dire, almost existential, set of global environmental challenges, from loss of biodiversity to climate change to plastic pollution, that call for action at all levels of government,” said Denis Hayes, the organizer of the first Earth Day in 1970 and Earth Day Network’s Board Chair Emeritus.

Association for Denman Island marine Stewards

ADIMS is a grassroots Denman Island organization. We have advocated for protection of our marine environment for 20 years. We have successfully raised awareness about what constitutes a healthy marine environment, and about the cumulative impacts of intense shellfish industrialization and aquaculture practices. We have fostered a sense of community stewardship of our marine environment, and continue to create opportunities for community members to protect its wellbeing.

Denman Conservancy Association

A volunteer organization supported by approximately 200 members, DCA promotes a strong ethic of land stewardship through public education, research and community participation. The Association has acquired land to preserve forests, wetlands and other ecologically sensitive habitats. This land has been set aside in perpetuity to preserve its natural heritage.

Be the Change Earth Alliance

Our Mission is to create new and innovative spaces for holistic sustainability learning in the education system through:

a. developing and delivering school programs & resources for educators, learners and partners

b. fostering a community of leaders through capacity building and tools to support change

Endangered Ecosystems Alliance

The organization works primarily at a federal level, as well as augmenting campaigns in the provinces and territories, to support the minimum 17% federal protection target by 2020 for Canada's terrestrial and freshwater ecosystems and for a 50% protection target by 2030 that includes ecosystem-specific targets. The organization will ultimately be working for a federal Endangered Ecosystems Act to protect all native and endangered ecosystems across the country on a much larger scale based on conservation biology principles and traditional ecological knowledge.

Blue Frontier Campaign

Founded in 2003 by award-winning author and journalist David Helvarg, and with support from public figures such as Dr. Sylvia Earle, Robert Kennedy Jr., Ralph Nader, Philippe Cousteau, Rep. Sam Farr (D CA) and former Rep. Wayne Gilchrest (R MD).

With offices in Washington DC and Richmond California, we convene key stakeholders including conscientious corporate and commercial entities such as Google, the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach, Northern Trust, Ocean First Divers and Legal Sea Foods.

United Nations

Due to the powers vested in its Charter and its unique international character, the United Nations can take action on the issues confronting humanity in the 21st century, such as peace and security, climate change, sustainable development, human rights, disarmament, terrorism, humanitarian and health emergencies, gender equality, governance, food production, and more.
