EcoDeaf Vision

EcoDeaf Mission and Vision

EcoDeaf is a space for people within the Deaf community to convene to share ideas and resources about eco-conscious living and experiential education.

Through contributions made by EcoDeaf readers, the community of Deaf/ASL people sharing common interests in ecologically sustainable lifestyles and learning-by-doing becomes more unified. Through this unity, green Deaf businesses and organizations are supported, lifestyles in harmony with the environment continue to be supported, and opportunities for educating our youth through experiential education are created.
