Four years ago, a dinner conversation with my teenagers changed my vision for environmental action, justice, and leadership.
The people who have contributed the least amount of carbon pollution are suffering the most.
I realized it was time to address the mental health impacts of the climate crisis (known as "eco-anxiety" and to create a way for more people to “see” themselves in climate action.
When I created the Service Superpower Assessment, a dear friend said to me,
"Heather, I think you should start your own organization."
I wondered: Does the world need another non-profit?
I'm certain entrepreneurs who open new restaurants don't ask themselves that question.
They see a need and go for it.
And so did I.
With that, the plan toward launching the nonprofit in April 2021 began.
Our mission is to tackle eco-anxiety through joyful daily action, leading to culture change for climate policy solutions.
I urged Emily Necessary Fowler, a fundraising dynamo and former educator and curriculum developer to join me as Chief of Start Up.
We built a website and created social platforms with exactly THREE followers -Emily, my mom, and me.
That’s how we brought the belief in the mission to tackle eco-anxiety through joyful daily action to life.
Here are a few highlights
from the last two years:
Here is an overview of our programs:
We’ve transformed a simple idea into a vibrant, growing community backed by global leaders in the mental health, wellbeing, sustainability, education, business, and legal fields.

Together, we will continue to make a greener, healthier, more just future for all.
