Mountain Institute for Environmental Democracy (GMI) works
to create governance systems that reinvigorate the essential connections
between citizens, government, and information necessary for effective
improvements in environmental quality and the long-term vitality
of communities and regions.
GMI accomplishes this through
the development, use, and support of collaborative, information-based
projects and processes. These processes build the capacities of
citizens, stakeholders, scientists, and government representatives
to participate in deliberations about environmental conditions.
In turn, these deliberations lead to improved decisions about environmental
quality and its relationship with human health, economic vitality,
civic capacity and our quality of life.
