Partnering with Economics for Peace Institute (epi)
Participatory Strategies Group (PSG) or Participatory Ecotourism Group (PEG)

epi is open to new and emerging partnerships.  We would like to work with a range of stakeholders, foundations, conservation organizations and communities.

We are looking for ways to integrate participatory research strategies into the existing framework for public participation in the United States and beyond.

Contact us to discuss how PAR strategies might best serve in your current or future initiatives.

We are exploring partnerships with:

Saul Alarcon, M.S. •  WildCoast • San Diego, CA  http://www.wildcoast.net/site/

Francoise Coupal. M.S. •  Mosaic, Inc. NGO • Ottawa Canada  http://www.mosaic-net-intl.ca/

Craig Leggett • Peace building with pastoralists in the Borana Lowlands of Somalia http://www.leggettconsulting.com/

Dr. Anu Ramaswami • IGERT Urban Sustainability program at University of Colorado, Denver http://thunder1.cudenver.edu/IGERT/

Participatory Ecotourism Business Incubator in southwestern Colorado and on tribal lands of the region. (An entrepreneurial leadership team of agricultural youth educators, farmers and adventure motorcyclists is ready to conduct a feasibility assessment. Project will rely on web 2.0 technologies to expand opportunities, reach public school programs across the U.S. and draw ecotourist dollars.  Despite over 3 million visitors every year, many of those that live in the Four Corners are underemployed.  Meaningful, well-paying job creation in 'clean' industries is a primary objective.)

Of note, epi’s partnerships and projects benefit from our customized online project management system.  We find this an effective method for coordinating communications and resources to strengthen project delivery. We also offer online community engagement services through our InvolveNET™ system.

Let us know if you visualize a role or project in which Economics for Peace Institute’s principles and mission would serve well.   To explore the parameters of a future partnership, please contact Myriem Le Ferrand, epi’s founder, at info @  econ4peace. org     

Together we can create a path to address the underlying causes of current conditions and move into our better futures.
