Mission & Vision

We are a statewide network of over 60 environmental, community, and environmental justice organizations focused on protecting North Carolina’s environment and public health.


NC Conservation Network supports, trains, and coordinates diverse groups and directly advocates to achieve equitable and sustainable solutions for our environment.


Diverse groups engage in environmental policy decision-making at all levels of government—creating a North Carolina committed to improving and protecting the state’s vast natural resources. Our state is steadfast in adopting anti-racist policies that address environmental justice and lead to equitable, healthy, and sustainable communities.

To reach our vision, NC Conservation Network:

  1. Trains, supports, and organizes the state’s diverse environmental community.
  2. Researches, promotes, and enacts policies that protect the environment.
  3. Stands with communities that have been historically impacted by inequities and environmental injustices, and works to support these communities in their fight for a more equitable future.
  4. Develops clear and succinct messages that will be utilized to achieve advocacy successes.
  5. Engages North Carolinians to support environmental policy.


The organization was launched in 1998 by a collaborative effort of more than 60 NC conservation, environmental justice, and community groups to improve the community`s communications and its capacity for effective advocacy.
