Mission Statement

Generation 180 is a non-profit committed to advancing the transition to clean energy and supporting a cultural shift in energy awareness through original, engaging content, digitally-enabled campaigns, and an empowered volunteer network.


Generation 180 is a clean energy nonprofit located in Charlottesville, VA, building a network of volunteer teams committed to advancing energy awareness and clean energy nationwide. Individual choices control 1/3 of U.S. carbon emissions-choices like transportation, how we power our homes, and diet. We have an opportunity to rapidly decarbonize at scale and low cost by changing our energy consumption. Generation 180 is building a network of nationwide volunteer teams to help move our country towards 100% clean energy, advancing this cultural shift towards energy awareness and clean energy adoption.

After working with Generation 180 for a few weeks, I have learned a lot about both the benefits of clean energy practices and the ways that individual people can make a difference through being informed and taking action. The projects that Gen180 is tackling (such as the "Solar Schools" and "Keep It Cool" campaigns) have a noticeable, measurable impact and fall in line with their mission of advancing the cultural shift of "energy awareness." This is a great organization to volunteer with if you want to do your part in the movement toward a world powered by clean energy!

It is a very professional organization with an inspiring mission and unique programs. It empowers individuals to make a meaningful difference. I look forward to working with them in the future and highly recommend anyone volunteer with them for a rewarding experience.
