We Want You

Thriving Earth Exchange is a place where communities and scientists come together to develop community science projects that make the places we live, work and play safer, healthier and more resilient. Everyone can get involved: read on for more information and to apply for Thriving Earth Exchange project opportunities!

Community Leads

Represent your community and its priorities on a Thriving Earth Exchange project!
Project design starts with communities. If you represent a community, including local or regional governments, tribal governments, community-based organizations, grassroots organizations or other advocacy or non-profit groups, launch a project with us! We match you with a Community Science Fellow who will work with you to identify scientists and experts to join the team.

Join a project and bring your scientific knowledge, networks and skills to the table to help ensure it succeeds! You can get involved by:

Community Science Fellows
