NWEI was founded on the belief that the solution to many of the Earth’s biggest challenges lies in the power of collective change: by taking small steps in our own lives, each of us contributes to a world of impact.

We strive to help people create change (both personal and global) by helping them connect with their communities, share learning and inspiration, and take action, together.

To date, we have helped more than 240,000 people change for good, in ways both small and large. But this is only the beginning. With your help, we will inspire more people to discover change, together.

    Organizing a course is easy, fun, and incredibly rewarding. Course organizers choose one of our 10 discussion courses that cut to the core of what people value and how they live: food, health, transportation and household consumption. Our course books help you guide the discussions that inspire your group to discover change, together.
