What we're all about

We Envision...

A world working together to support humanity’s full social, economic & ecological potential.

Our Mission

Founded in 2001, Empowerment WORKS (EW) is a global sustainability think-tank in action empowering the inevitable partnership of humanity to co-create a healthier, culturally rich, and ecologically thriving future.

We believe...

Leadership from within the communities affected by critical issues is vital to transformative change.

What we do and how

In the world's most culturally rich, yet economically challenged communities, Empowerment WORKS brings access to markets, appropriate technologies and education, within the grasp of citizens on the front lines.

Promoting global collaboration in support of local solutions, Empowerment WORKS fosters a diverse, cross-sector network of Partners in Empowerment (PIE) united in action by an ecologically inspired social innovation framework called 7 Stages to Sustainability (7SS). 


Through The Global Summit, Pulse of the Movement webcasts, Artists in Action events and other creative civic engagement, Empowerment WORKS inspires people across the globe to realize the value of their existing knowledge, unique talents and collective potential to change the world.
