Our Mission…

To educate and support a diverse group of North Carolinians who are committed to seeking consensus on issues affecting the sustainable development of North Carolina's natural resources and the quality of our environment.

Our Values…

We believe that people involved in environmental conflict can reach fair and efficient solutions by:

  • communicating more effectively,
  • opening the dialogue to include all stakeholders,
  • structuring problems to reflect complexity and uncertainty,
  • and negotiating to settle disagreements.

Our Role…

Leadership development, decision support, training, and research. Mary Lou Addor
