The Earth Stewardship Alliance (ESA) is a community action network for individuals and organizations dedicated to stewarding the health of our local and global ecosystem. We provide a collaborative, strategic platform for citizens to take action on local environmental issues.
Mother Earth abundantly provides us with everything we need to thrive. It is now our opportunity to offer our gratitude, support and respect by honoring the health of her waters, air and soil. We welcome all to this alliance whom hold a vision for a healthy, thriving and harmonious planet.
“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed people can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.” – Margaret Mead
We meet monthly to strategize and implement COMMUNITY ACTION PLANS focused on a variety of local environmental issues & initiatives. Our diverse and highly skilled team brings professionalism and precision to peaceful & creative strategies for environmental education, awareness and activism.
We are waiting no longer. If you have been feeling the CALL to TAKE ACTION… NOW is the TIME. We honor the Earth as sacred. We honor the right for future generations to live upon a healthy, thriving and beautiful planet. We honor the Universal Rights of Nature. The call has been made… thank you for answering!

Local & Global Alliance
Our founding Community Action Group is based in San Diego – yet the model can be replicated in other cities and communities around the world; extending ever further the reach, power and collective impact of a geographically networked and integrated environmental alliance. If you would like to start an ESA group in a community outside of San Diego… please contact our coordinators. We will help you form a local action group!
