About Us

hr_blue_short

Infinite Earth Academy is an idea sharing, training, mentoring, networking, and movement building platform. We believe the path to a more sustainable, resilient, and equitable future is through radical innovation at the local level and rapidly spreading the best ideas, strategies, and tools.

Local and regional leaders are already making great progress in addressing the pressing environmental, economic, and social challenges of our time, but we need to more rapidly spread the best ideas and dramatically increase sustainability, resiliency, and equity in communities across the United States.

Our mission is to support visionary local leaders through idea sharing, training, mentoring, and most importantly by creating a support network and building a movement.
