The Ripple Academy Sets Sail

Dear Earth Allies,

We’ve set sail for the next chapter! This Fall, thirty women from throughout India will gather in Rishikesh, India to kick off the Ripple Academy. Along with our partner, URI, and our global design team, we’ve developed the first in a series of Ripple Academy “Learning Labs” in different regions — 2-month programming that includes a 3-day workshop and an interactive online training. The Lab will support women leaders to strengthen their grassroots environmental initiatives, increasing the impact of their vital solutions.

The Ripple Academy scales the success of WEA’s model — developed over more than a decade of supporting grassroots women environmental leaders — by guiding multiple cohorts of women leaders through year-long WEA trainings that equip them with skills, tools, and resources to scale income-generating environmental projects.

With ongoing mentorship and global visibility, they will transform the impact of their initiatives alongside aligned leaders — exponentially advancing regional environmental solutions and influencing global environmental goals.

Thank you for being with us for the journey.


Melinda, Amira, and the WEA Team
