AEN began as a listserv in 2003, became a website in 2009 and added the EcoNewsletter in 2010. The website features Austin’s most comprehensive listing of green events on the EcoCalendar, blogs written by green thought leaders and a dedicated staff of journalism professionals, as well as a wide array of entertaining and educational podcasts.
What we do:
For more than 12 years the Austin EcoNetwork has been educating and connecting Austinites on important environmental issues throughout the city.
We believe that government only works when all of its citizens are educated and involved, and we work hard every day to provide Austinites with the practical information they need to stay informed and to get involved, however they see fit.
We do this by:
Austin EcoNetwork Mission:
Serve as a conduit of information and facilitator of action to help Austinites lead the way toward a healthy, sustainable community and planet.
It means that we are part and parcel of the local community. We listen to their concerns. We cover issues that matter to them. We write about groups of people who are often ignored by the main stream media.
It also means that we help the community share information about local educational events, like lectures, marches, meetings, and festivals, all relating to the environment.
If you want to post an event relevant to BOTH Austin and sustainability, log in to the site and add an event, or contact us. Fees will apply if the event is fee-based or hosted by a business.
So have a look around, listen to a podcast, and check out an event listed on the calendar. We hope you’ll be a regular visitor, make the most of what is offered and become a more active, informed Austinite.
