Environmental Advocacy within Non-Governmental Organizations
MetadataShow full item record
The purpose of this capstone is to understand how non-governmental organizations (NGOs) assess global climate change in their advocacy at the local level. NGOs were identified as participants in political arenas and often close gaps in environmental initiatives. This case study aims to analyze collaborative networks developed by the Puget Sound Sage. This particular NGO is a Seattle-based organization whose mission is to “build communities where all families thrive.” They identify their process as working towards more equitable and sustainable objectives through research, policy initiatives, and community engagement. Further, this case study provides analytical observations as to how NGOs’ strategic interactions influence their efforts to combine climate change solutions with equity concerns. In addition, Got Green is a partner NGO, which was studied in relation to its collaboration with the Puget Sound Sage. Among a variety of other issues, there are numerous responses to climate change, and varying levels of intervention at the local, national, and global level.
