About Us

A mission to support the environment

Piedmont Environmental Alliance educates and empowers, builds community, and inspires action to create a more resilient, just, and sustainable Piedmont Triad.

Dynamic programs that educate and empower

Our education programs inspire learners of all ages to become citizen environmentalists, with the tools and knowledge to make sustainable lifestyle choices, champion environmental issues, and address climate change in their own communities.

Exciting community engagement and events

We organize events that educate, inspire pro-environmental, build community, and provide engagement opportunities for people of all ages to become more sustainable and tackle climate change at home. Our Earth Day Fair is THE event for celebrating sustainability and green living in the region, with great food and music, activities for adults and kids, and wonderful exhibitors and sponsors.

Robust partnerships and action to support the environment

We partner with organizations, corporations, individuals, and communities across the region to influence policy and practice on environmental issues. From collecting signatures to support the elimination of styrofoam trays in local schools to launching our Green Business Network designed to motivate local business owners to take action on environmental issues, we’re focused on bringing a diverse range of folks to the table to create real community change.
