One Change has come a long way. In 1995, we were a small group of friends with an idea. Today, One Change is an award-winning not-for-profit organization that has empowered millions of people across North America to believe that simple actions matter and that their choices can—and do—have an impact on the environment.
We’re very proud of what we’ve accomplished. But more than that, we’re grateful to the people who helped make it possible.
The Catalyst Awards started in 2009, to recognize people who helped One Change get started, or who are “catalysts” to change in their own communities. The event was a major coming out for One Change, the moment we stepped out from the shadow of Project Porchlight and asserted our Simple Actions Matter mantra. Someone (or in this case, many) had to push the first domino! These are our catalysts!
By making simple first actions accessible to all, we are creating catalysts everywhere we go and are leading to more and greater changes in the communities where we operate.
