The Time for Environmental Action is NOW!

About Us

"[Starting in 1972] we sought to train a cadre of volunteers to be effective and influential workers and speakers in the field of environmental planning and quality. This was the first experiment of its kind in the US. It was an idea whose time had come." 

--Dr. Martin Griffin, Founder

Our Mission: Environmental Forum of Marin Promotes a Sustainable World through Environmental Education

EFM has been reshaping the environment of Marin since our founding in 1972. We are focused on providing Marin residents #education4action: teaching about complex environmental issues and training them in the skills to take effective action.

We recently graduated our 46th Master Class. Our thousands of graduates have made significant impacts and include luminaries such as Barbara Boxer. This fall we will be offering Forum 2020, a comprehensive set of classes delivered virtually. We invite you to select the classes that most interest you to customized your own #education4action.


Environmental Forum of Marin is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, and a United Way of the Bay Area Certified Agency.
