IEC's Vision for Iowa: We envision a state that is a leader in addressing climate change and environmental justice, and in creating resilient communities that embody Iowans' shared values of respect for all people and the environment.
Developed as part of IEC’s new strategic plan in 2022, the above vision statement captures the hopes and passions of IEC’s members, supporters, board, and staff. Coupled with our mission statement – a just, healthy environment and sustainable future for all Iowans – these echo the goals of IEC’s founding leaders nearly 30 years ago, while reflecting the growth and change of our organization today.
Together with you and our partners across the state, we have a plan to make this vision a reality. We are working to build a more powerful, more diverse environmental movement in Iowa; centering climate and environmental justice; and expanding our advocacy to tackle the historic challenges we face.
We invite you to read this Annual Report to learn how our new mission and vision guided our work over the past year and how they are informing our plans for the future. We look forward to partnering with you to create a just, healthy environment and a sustainable future for all Iowans.
