EcoAllies When allies for the earth want allies for themselves…
Our purpose in creating EcoAllies is to enable you find the environmentally-conscious allies you've always wanted, the allies that - in particular - can enable you to accomplish what is only possible with effective and empowering mutual support, with others who understand your concerns.
We want to make it easy for you to:
Discover new, like-mindedallies for cooperative exchanges
Uncover new, empowering practices with individuals you already know
Recover your original authentic self in safe and supportive environments
Talk, listen, heal, and solve problems - from the personal to the planetary - with EcoAllies!
We Can Avoid Isolation, Discouragement and Burnout via Meaningful Connections
When important things take place on our planet – the good or bad (and sometimes terrible) happenings – we benefit when we can supportively engage with other humans, to better process our thoughts and feelings. Perhaps most of all, we seek to develop ongoing close and empowering connections with others who can be the allies we trust to be there for us (and us for them!).
Soon, there will be a new way to find such meaningful connections with others who, like you, care deeply about our planet earth: our EcoAllies website, currently under development.
What Makes An Ally a Truly Effective One for You?
Is it someone who...
Is available to listen when your thoughts and feelings are fresh in your mind and heart?
Will gladly discuss the kinds of topics you're interested in?
Can cooperate in ways that work well for each of you?
Will listen to and support you just the way you want (e.g., not interrupting, if that’s your wish)?
Can, in a caring way, encourage you to express your deep-down thoughts and feelings?
Can cooperate, on your terms, with your problem-solving efforts?
Is delighted with your humanness, and can remind you that you’ve done the best you could?
Doesn’t judge you, and enjoys working with you to unlock your best self?
Can keep confidential whatever you do or share (if that's your agreement)?
Can give you the quantity and quality of attention to make a significant difference, as you define it?
Can exchange with you these kinds of cooperation (if desired, keeping your efforts equal)?
Only You Know What’s Best for You
Our CoOptimum team is developing EcoAllies to be an easy and effective way for anyone to find the kinds of allies that can really make a difference in our lives, kindred spirits who can and will support us on our unique journey, and on our unique terms. And whatever those unique terms might be that we reveal, EcoAllies will, by design, keep them completely confidential.
Our team could make educated guesses as to what might make effective EcoAllies for you, and design EcoAllies from those assumptions. But because only you know what’s best for you, we really seek your input on these important design choices. Toward that end, we’ve created a survey to help us understand your interaction preferences, as well as what characteristics you think will make a great ally for you.
In addition, we think our survey might give you ideas you could use right now with people you already know. Later, after we’ve implemented the EcoAllies matchmaking functionality, you’ll be able to connect with potential allies you don’t yet know, based on your preferences and interests that privately match up with others.
