Global Community Initiatives (GCI) helps communities move forward with confidence and enthusiasm to achieve their vision for a healthy environment, a vibrant economy, good governance, and a sense of connection to their neighbors and the world.
We assist communities with projects that foster democratic practices, social and economic justice, respect and care for the community of life, and environmental integrity. We work to create a context where people feel inspired to work for positive change.
Who we are
The GCI Board of Directors represents all the major regions of the world, with board members from Africa, Asia, Europe, the Middle East, South Asia, and the Americas. We are committed to maintaining a gender balance on the board, as well as religious and ethnic diversity.
The GCI staff also reflects the culture and ethnic makeup of the areas where we work. We are an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer, and we are committed to paying our employees livable wages and providing health and vacation benefits.
The Affiliates of GCI are colleagues from all over the world who work with us on projects, and whose other work is closely related to the work we do. We welcome partnerships with people and organizations who share our goals and values.
What we do
Our current projects include working with the Public Banking Institute (PBI), a national organization for public banks based in Sonoma, California, and Vermonters for a New Economy (VNE), a coalition of organizations, businesses and individuals who are all working to create a new economy for Vermont.
The Public Banking Institute works with cities, regions, states, and countries to secure public credit for important priorities - infrastructure, housing, jobs, education, renewable energy, and other critical human needs.
