The Alliance is an expression of the strong commitment of many people, groups and organizations to the healthiest of environments along the Emerald Coast.  In 2019, there was a common recognition that the time had come for a greater mutual effort to make the whole of our area’s environmental activity greater than the sum of its parts. 

A series of meetings in March and April 2019 led to a strong consensus to creating a mechanism or framework to increase the impact of individual organizations’ programs, strengthen collaboration on shared interests and common areas, and undertake new activities where cooperation is needed.

On April 16, 2019, eight organizations and three supporting programs agreed to launch the Alliance as a welcoming tent for all organizations who share the Alliance’s goals and spirit of collegial collaboration. By establishing the Alliance we hope that others will come and join the important work before us today and into the future.
