Project Details

What We Need
  • Written recommendations to improve a specific process, including the controls necessary to maintain the revised process
  • An outline of key metrics for tracking how successful the process improvements are over time, with current-state benchmarks
Additional Details

Our organization put together a work plan on Google Docs with our key projects, deliverables, timelines, etc. Now we need a way to share this amongst the group, keep it updated (without getting bogged down in administrative tasks), etc., with a goal of keeping everyone updated--including funders, Board members, staff, etc.

We are as intersted in the technology as we are the process. Asana? Notion? Guru?

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have a work plan, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have staff ready to collaborate with you, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $7,888 , allowing us to hire contracting lawyers to advance the Rights of Nature

Our team is growing, and that means we have to collaborate better, share our resources, and keep updated about our shared projects. This will help us meet our full potential!

  • Volunteer Manager explains the key goals for the process improvement (e.g., reduced cost, errors, time, etc.)
Milestone 1: Research & Analysis

  • Professional performs any additional research and analysis, including interviews with key stakeholders if needed
Milestone 2: Draft Recommendations

  • Organization provides feedback which the Professional incorporates
Milestone 3: Final Recommendations

Our Mission

Earth Law Center catalyzes a global movement to rebalance the human-Nature relationship.

We do this by working to make ELC a household name, expanding the body of Earth Law, and providing tools for judges and lawyers to analyze in decisions affecting the natural environment.

What We Do

Our continued well being depends on a paradigm shift in law from a human based one to a nature based one so ecological communities can regenerate and thrive.

This includes a wide range of activities from researching and writing part of an amendment being considered by the Oaxaca Parliament for rights of rivers, to Amicus Briefs (12+ submitted since 2018). This includes the first Earth Law textbook in the world, published by Wolters Kluwer as well as Earth Law frameworks for rivers, marine protected areas and communities.

Catchafire volunteers form a core part of ELC's volunteer leaders, and we've completed over 100+ projects. So thank you Catchafire!!!
