The pandemic has hit colleges, universities and fields of education hard. We are raising money now to prepare for our upcoming re-accreditation efforts and to continue to bring the most current ecological psychology education to our students and the wider community.
The image for our 2020 Fundraiser, Rooted in Justice, by Viridis Board member Pamela Bjork, is a deep expression of her relationship with Aspen trees – their beauty and their intimate cooperation. Aspen trees do not stand alone, rather they are members of a larger organism whose main life force is an extensive underground root system.
When you participate in our auction or donate to Viridis, you join in our Aspen-like ecosystem. We do not stand alone, but rather depend on the exchanges of resources and the diversity of ideas to evolve the ever-changing field of ecopsychology.

Viridis Graduate Institute is an accredited nonprofit distance-learning institution. We offer a distinctive education in ecopsychology and environmental humanities designed to equip graduates with the professional and collaborative skills needed to respond creatively to the world's challenging problems.
This pandemic confirms the critical nature of an ecological and psychological education.
We learn from ecological psychology that destructive practices which make pandemics more likely are rooted in human narratives. An ecopsychological education facilitates the transformation of the narratives and behaviors that perpetuate destructive policies and practices, harming the planet and degrading ecological habitats for non-human and human communities alike.
By choosing to support Viridis Graduate Institute you are helping to change humanity's psychological evolution of narratives and behaviors to be more cooperative, collaborative and relational with the one planet we call home and with each other.
