Our Coalition


Launched in 2008, the Green Cities Coalition is a grass-roots organization aimed at creating partnerships and encouraging collaboration among the people and organizations working for sustainability in the Pikes Peak Region. We are a true coalition with 99 percent of our projects being accomplished by our organization, business, and individual members. The GCC focuses on educating people, organizing partnerships and enhancing communications around all things sustainable.

Green Cities Coalition Vision and Mission

Our vision is for communities and governments to achieve and maintain an economically healthy, environmentally sustainable, and socially inclusive culture. GCC’s mission is to serve as a resource and hub for advocacy, organization, and strategy to sustain healthy communities in El Paso County.

More than 60 organizations, businesses, and individuals have participated with our coalition, developing initiatives in many areas that impact the sustainability of the region. Our 2016 Champions are Blue Planet Earthscapes, Cascade Escapes, Common Cause Catering, Downtown Fine Spirits & Wines, Jan-Pro Cleaning Systems, Old Town Bike Shop, Pikes Peak Justice & Peace Commission and Seeds Community Café.
