Our Work

C-CHANGE supports agricultural communities for the production of nutritious food, renewable energy, healthy soil, clean water, and abundant wildlife through renewable and regenerative mechanisms. Renewable and regenerative mechanisms include photosynthesis, carbon and nutrient cycles, biological growth and reproduction, markets, and social linkages. Our mission is to return value to people and the land through research partnerships.

We achieve this mission through work on smart technologies, coupled systems, socioeconomic innovations, and leadership and engagement.
