About Thriving Earth Exchange projects

Thriving Earth Exchange projects start with community priorities and any community can start a project with us! We encourage communities of any size and type within the United States to submit a local priority, issue, and/or project idea related to natural hazards, the environment, or climate change.

Check out these examples:

Thriving Earth Exchange is free of charge for communities, and projects typically do not come with funding: we design projects that make an impact through creative problem-solving, in-kind support, and the resources at hand. Projects are supported by Community Science Fellows – project managers we train and match with you – and volunteer scientists.

Thriving Earth Exchange launches projects quarterly, and applications are reviewed on a rolling basis. Submit an application in response to a specific initiative, or at any time with a general idea.
