Project Details

What We Need
  • A compilation of research on a specific topic (e.g. industry best practices, literature review, media contacts, industry trends, etc.) including a list of sources
  • Recommendations on areas for further exploration/research
  • Note: This project is not designed to be used for prospect or grant research
Additional Details

Work directly with ELC's Executive Director Grant Wilson to research for critical fundraising and development.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have an online library of all previous grants, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have a fun and smart team who you'll love working with, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $5,239 , allowing us to launch new frontline initiatives and move current ones forward with greater momentum.

Catalyzing a global movement to rebalance the human-Nature relationship means exponentially expanding a network of conversations for this possibility. Expanding our funding allows us to do that effectively by partnering with more indigenous and local organizations to pass new laws and expand the implementation network.

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!!!
