We're devoted to community-driven environmental work.

CIELO is a non-profit organization that supports environmental and community health initiatives.

We are dedicated to the regeneration of the planet.

Nature is our wisest teacher. Our projects strive to protect and enhance natural systems that maintain clean water and air, healthy soils, and thriving communities. 

We celebrate the diversity of our global family.

We believe that modern science should be complemented with wisdom from traditional practices and indigenous worldviews.

Our Partnership with CEPC Toliman

CIELO’s first partner is CEPC Toliman, a community-focused permaculture initiative in rural Guatemala founded and run entirely by indigenous Maya-Kaqchikel people. They are dedicated to protecting the environment and empowering the local community through ecological agriculture projects and training.
