EARTH Futures Impact Model
Impact Model

EARTH Futures is a new global platform at EARTH University.

EARTH University is a private, non-profit, international university based in Costa Rica and created with support from the Costa Rican government, U.S. Agency for International Development and the W.K. Kellogg Foundation. Since 1990, EARTH University’s innovative educational experience has prepared more than 2,200 young people from Latin America, the Caribbean and Africa to act as enlightened and effective leaders for rural areas.

In 2018, the University decided to create EARTH Futures, a global platform for advancing leadership to transform rural areas in developing regions. EARTH Futures builds on EARTH University’s core strengths in leadership education and the development of community-driven solutions to increase direct impact on institutions, policies and rural livelihoods.

Through EARTH’s unique educational experience and the work of EARTH Futures, over the next 10 years we seek to inspire, prepare and support leaders and develop innovative solutions to impact the lives of millions of rural people.
