Review for ACTERRA: Action for a Healthy Planet, Palo Alto, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have worked together with this group for about 5 years. I have learned a lot about environmental leadership and sustainable living. They are a great example of a small group of people making a huge difference in the area where they live. They now have 4 cities signed up for Green at Home which should reduce GHG by hundreds of thousands of CO2 equivalents.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

providing leadership to educate the public about environmental issues.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

be worn out trying to manage all the events.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the breadth of knowledge the staff has.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

warm, friendly and knowledgable.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

hire more staff and do more of what it already does well.

Ways to make it better...

I had more time.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

keeping up with all the things it does and making each event a quality venue.

One thing I'd also say is that...

Debbie Mytels is a gracious and talented leader.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?


Role:  General Member of the Public & I took the class "Be the Change".
