The Access Initiative

TAI welcomes the support of activists, social movements and individuals around the world who support the fight for environmental democracy and who believe that peoples involvement in environmental decision-making holds the potential to save our planet for future generations.

Learn About Our Campaigns

Our partners are working hard to create a world where people everywhere can meaningfully exercise their rights of access to information, public participation and justice. At the local, regional, national and international levels, TAI is involved in numerous campaigns to win important policy victories and fulfill our mission. Together, we are using evidence-based advocacy and building a movement to change the way decisions about natural resources are made.

Yet social change takes time and collective action. The key to establishing and asserting these rights is you!  Lend your voice to the issues we care about and help bring our advocacy to a new level. Learn more about current campaigns and how you can get involved.

The TAI Secretariat and TAI partners host a variety of events throughout the year to promote improvements in transparency, participation and justice in countries all over the world. In addition to our bi-annual Global Gathering, there are a number of events to support civil society groups on issues like access rights and cities, forestry, mining, land rights and climate change.
