Village and Wilderness brings people together –
Individuals, organizations and civic groups–
Funders, mentors, and innovators who can work together to develop and test new ideas.
We focus on innovation – because if conventional strategies worked, the problems would be solved by now.
We offer mentoring and fiscal sponsorships for startup nonprofits, social entrepreneurs and independent innovators who are looking for new and effective ways to address climate change at the local level.
We help these innovators research and create new strategies, test their ideas, access funding, and collaborate across industries and domains.
We also help them share their failures and successes for others to learn from.

Communities don’t need scalable strategies, they need replicable ones that have been proven to work. Through our blog we help you share your solutions with organizations and communities who can adapt and use them.
