Creative Action Institute

creativeactionlogo“Creativity is the spark of life, the vitality that stirs desires to improve and change the status quo – meaningfully, responsibly, wisely, and with impact.”  -Marci Segal

Creative Action Institute works at the intersection of creativity and social change. We build the capacity of leaders and organizations for innovation, collaboration and resilience to advance conservation, health and human rights globally.
Creativity powers people, and people working together power change. We seek to build an inclusive and just world where individuals, communities and ecosystems flourish.
An unlimited resource.
Creativity is often thought of as a talent that a few special people are born with. In reality, the ability to create is an unlimited wellspring of innovation within us all and the key to meeting increasingly complex challenges. In the face of climate change, dwindling resources and social instability, our world needs more innovative collaboration and people-powered solutions. Here at Creative Action Institute, our education, training and outreach programs are designed to ignite and equip this process.
