What is Mosaic?

Mosaic is an initiative designed to add to the environmental movement’s capacity to deliver clean air and water, a stable climate, and healthy and vibrant communities for all. By bolstering connections and shared resources across the environmental field—like communications, advocacy tools, training, leadership development, and more—Mosaic will enable a more connected, powerful, and inclusive environmental movement.

Mosaic supports strong field-wide infrastructure
Academic experts and social movement leaders agree that movement infrastructure—or the shared field-wide relationships and resources that enable people and organizations to work together—is critical to the success of all social movements. It is as important as money. Mosaic will enhance the existing power of the environmental field by strengthening six types of movement infrastructure judged most critical by experts and diverse field leaders.

Mosaic invests in critical tools and relationships the field wants and needs
Mosaic will help strengthen six categories of field-wide infrastructure by soliciting and supporting the best project ideas from the field. Individually and together, these projects can make the field more powerful now, and in the future, by adding and strengthening key relationships and tools.

Mosaic investments boost the whole field
Strengthening movement infrastructure is a systemic reinforcement tailored to the environmental field today in the U.S. It will leverage the field’s strengths—including its size, financial resources, reach, and focus on a diversity of issues. Bolstering connections and shared resources across the field will better equip people and organizations to (1) build relationships, (2) sort and select joint priorities, and (3) collaborate on effective scaled action—the three capacities all movements need to maximize success.

Mosaic is a hub that brings together the field and funders
A diverse and rotating governance body of field actors (people and organizations), working together with funder representatives, will lead Mosaic and help strengthen movement infrastructure, the shared field-wide relationships and resources that empower people and organizations to work together, to protect the environment for all.
