Good public policy begins with education. Conservation Voters Education Fund works hard to educate decision-makers and the public about the environmental challenges facing South Carolina and the best policy prescription to meet those challenges.
The Education Fund also runs regional and issue-specific programs designed to create a more open dialogue between local governments and the public on environmental priorities. Please learn more about our Climate and Sustainability and Sustainable Midlands projects.
Conservation Voters Education Fund works to build the capacity of South Carolina's conservation community by providing services, technology tools and trainings that increase the overall effectiveness of the conservation community. These services include regular list enhancements. For more information, contact Conservation Voters at email@example.com.
