Next30 Committee

The Southern Environmental Law Center launched the Next30 Initiative in 2016 to bring together environmental leaders from around the region. As part of their membership on this committee, ambassadors gather in conjunction with our annual board meeting where they learn more about the environmental issues facing the Southeast today, and how SELC addresses these issues. They then take that knowledge back to their communities, where they serve as SELC ambassadors and help expand our network to the next generation of environmentalists.
