Occidential Arts & Ecology supports change makers and communities to design for a resilient future. We live in a time of profound challenges that require immediate, courageous and strategic responses. We are confronted by global ecological and climate crises, by widespread social injustice, and by economic and governance systems unwilling and unable to correct the course.
OAEC’s work focuses on cultivating ecological literacy and building the capacity of civic and social movement leaders and organizations to guide their communities toward an ecologically regenerative, economically viable, and socially just future. We see that the most innovative and effective change is happening at the regional and local levels — all around the world.
We work with communities in our own home region of Northern California, and we learn from and support similar efforts in many other parts of the U.S. and world. Join us! Please note that we are actively seeking a diverse applicant pool, and encourage candidates of all backgrounds to apply.
Ideal candidates will bring enthusiasm for OAEC’s mission of cultivating ecological literacy and building the capacity of civic and social movement leaders and organizations to guide their own communities to an ecologically regenerative, economically viable, and socially just future.
