Global Awarness Local Action Community Center

Nonprofit or community organization

Last modified: December 18, 2014, 3:13 AM


G.A.L.A. exists to help make communities more sustainable, desirable, and resilient. We achieve this mission through education, indvidual action, and community enrichment that restore our environment and build social capital.

Global Awareness Local Action (G.A.L.A.) is a grassroots nonprofit focused on translating sustainability education into local action that is practical, effective, and fun. Our office is in the Ossipee Mt. Grange Hall located in the old mill town of Water Village in Ossipee, NH. We are a small nonprofit with a big vision. We are committed to making the tools and knowledge accessible so that EVERYONE has the opportunity to be a part of sustainable community building EVERYDAY.

G.A.L.A. is committed to making a difference within our sphere of influence – our homes, our neighborhoods, our communities. We agree with Wendell Berry when he says, "The right local questions and answers will be the right global ones." We believe that sustainable community building is a creative process, not a promise, and we are committed to embarking on this process in a way that is strategic, makes sense, and is fun for those involved.

We believe that all the technology, creativity, and intelligence necessary to make our communities more sustainable is all around us. Our focus is not to search far and wide for experts in the field, but rather to harness those resources that already exist within our communities. We echo the Hopi Elders who proclaim, "We are the ones we've been waiting for."

We embrace the broad and complex nature of sustainability, while also striving to simplify the concept by making it practical and local. Because sustainability looks different everywhere, we design our programs based on unique local conditions. We also aim to make the necessary tools, services, and information accessible that empower people to contribute to sustainable community building everyday.

Our goal from the beginning, however, has never been to expand what we can do, but rather to build a contagious community building model that we can spread throughout New England. If you are interested in being a part of making the world a better place through this vision, than please apply today!
