The Ripple Academy will bring together the best of URI’s and WEA’s grassroots leadership models, offering a coordinated training experience to equip leading changemakers with the skills, tools, and alliances they need to build bridges of cooperation and environmental solutions for generations to come. Expect to see projects like women’s clean cookstove microenterprises in Kenya, community seed banks in Egypt, sanitation efforts in India, or water rights in Jordan, Israel, and Palestine.
