Goodbye, climate anxiety! 
Hello, solutions.

The most fun place for busy people like you to learn about climate justice solutions, create a personal action plan, and build accountability with new friends. Join for the 6-week live fellowship; stay for the lighthearted lifelong community.
Apply by September 28, 2023 for our Fall Cohort.

Pictures of various happenings within our community, including two members smiling and hanging out at the farmers market holding flowers, a post on how to call your elected officials, and a screenshot of a tree planting event invitation.

The struggle is real, but we can solve it together.

We've designed our fellowship and community around
doing good and feeling good.

Sound familiar?
"I want to do my part but I don't even know where to start."

We've created a curated journey for you based on what you're interested in. Through a combination of live discussions and offline learning modules, you'll get a sense of where YOU fit into building the world you want to live in.

"Do my actions even make a difference?"

When you surround yourself with a brilliant community of like-minded changemakers, you can see for yourself that your actions matter. We'll also help you find local actions you can take that are more tangible and accessible for you.

"I feel guilty for not doing enough."

Joining our community will help you calibrate your actions. You'll internalize that you ARE doing enough, just by being here, staying committed, and engaging with solutions. We'll guide you through doing the inner work of climate justice and caring for yourself. After all, a happy planet should mean happy people!

"How do I talk about it without coming off as judgmental?"

EVERYONE who comes to the Soapbox Project community struggles with climate conversations. That's why we've dedicated an entire week to practicing these conversations in a safe space so you know how to navigate them in your own life.

"I feel isolated because my friends don't seem to care."

Caring about the planet is usually amazing. But it sucks when it feels like you're alone! When you come into the Soapbox Project community, you'll take a deep breath (literally, it's part of our live discussions lol). We're focused on taking action, but we also want you to find a deep sense of support and solidarity.

"I struggle to stay accountable when life gets in the way."

With demanding jobs, caregiving responsibilities, family stuff, and generally staying alive in this chaotic world, it can be hard to keep up with the actions you want to take! That's why we're huge on accountability. After you graduate from our 6-week cohort, you'll activate your yearlong membership alongside new friends. We can all work towards our goals together!

Next fellowship: 
Oct 3-Nov 7

only $449 annually or $29 monthly

What if you could conquer climate anxiety, make new best friends, invest in your skills, and become a leader... only at the cost of one nice dinner a month?


No experience required. 2 hours a week max.
Live sessions are Tuesdays 8-9am PST.

How it works

Accelerate your climate action journey in 6 weeks.

Find your WHY

Our very first week together, you'll meet your cohort members, develop your climate story, and do an interactive exercise to find out where YOU should focus your impact.

Set initial goals

You'll chat with your new breakout group on what stage in your life you're at and brainstorm initial goals that make sense for you. Here, we'll get started on our personal action game boards.

Identify your influence network

It's time to understand WHO you'll need as allies in your action journey. We'll revisit our initial goals, find collaborators, and make a realistic plan.

Practice conversations

How do you talk about the things you care about and the actions you're taking without coming off as preachy, judgmental, or self-righteous? This week, we'll learn about conversations frameworks and practice them in a safe space.

Create specific commitments

We've been working on our personal action plans for a while now, and this week, we'll create specific commitments to build momentum after our fellowship ends. You'll discuss this in your breakouts and get ideas on how to bring your dreams to life.

Make a plan for obstacles + graduate!

Alas, everything does not go to plan especially in our capitalist hellscape. We'll talk about what happens when you encounter obstacles (by now, you'll have some real-life stories to share) and we'll troubleshoot. Then, we'll have a lil graduation ceremony and talk about what the rest of the year at Soapbox will look like for you!
What's included?

We've got you every step of the way.

Self-discovery & growth

This is a group of thoughtful problem-solvers and encouraging humans who are ready to be your friend while taking care of our planet. I’m constantly growing thanks to the amazing speakers who present at our community every month. I am a better person because I joined the Soapbox community and I can’t recommend it highly enough.

Life-changing knowledge

The Climate Action Cohort with Soapbox Project changed my life. After hearing from Jordan Todoroff, a textiles expert, I literally think differently about every piece of clothing I touch, feel, and see.

I would sign up for any learning experience Soapbox Project offers.

Career development

The accountability and inspiration I got from my Soapbox Climate Action Cohort was exactly what I needed to make an impact during my day-to-day job. I wrote myself a new job description, got leadership buy-in, and even kept going after I got a "no" thanks to encouragement from this community!

A community for humans

In a world of surface-level networking groups, the vibe of Soapbox is incredibly welcoming, inspiring, and human. I love this community because it's a place that helps me stay engaged instead of letting climate anxiety create inaction.

Creative & fun activism

My favorite thing about Soapbox is the community, as well as how well-written and clear the learning content is to consume. You are truly making following environmentalism and climate change efforts so easy and fun. Like the art walk today was so cool and creative to include.

Supportive connections

Through Soapbox, I’ve gotten free tickets to sustainability film festivals, recommendations for policy change, and tips to sustainably move my 401(k) from my old job. Many social justice-oriented things I read are depressing, but Soapbox Project is informative, actionable, and supportive.

Private online gathering space

You'll see 50+ expert event replays, multiple sustainable product recommendations (and discounts!), advocacy toolkits, encouraging prompts to share wins, and much, much more. If you have a question, your new friends likely have an answer.

Local action opportunities

Together, Soapbox Project members have eaten bagels in New York, painted non-profit facilities in Seattle, supported local farmers markets in San Francisco, and done policy advocacy all around the world. You might meet your new best friend here!

Frequently asked questions

Click through to get your questions answered. There's a place on our sign-up form to ask more Q's!

What's the pricing structure of this course?
Arrow (clickable)

This cohort will be $449 and will include an annual membership. We also have a monthly payment plan, which is the cost of only one nice dinner a month. Also, if you work for a company, your employer will likely cover this sort of thing - check your learning & development budget or ask your manager!

How do I register?
Arrow (clickable)

All you have to do is sign up via our application form! There's an option to chat with one of our team members if you have questions that aren't answered here.

What happens after my first year as a member?
Arrow (clickable)

You can choose to renew your membership annually, and we hope you do. The best part of joining a community like this is that YOU get to have a say in shaping the future of Soapbox. We're still figuring out what Year 2, 3, and beyond look like, but for now, members who have been with us for a while get to be mentors, find press opportunities to share their climate work, get selected to speak at conferences, and more. After Year 1, we'll transition from you finding your way to becoming a true climate leader.

What experience do I need to participate?
Arrow (clickable)

Formally - NONE!! The ONLY pre-requisite for this cohort is that you have an earnest desire to change yourself and engage in this topic with honesty and accountability*. If you commit to approaching this program with curiosity, prioritizing good impacts vs. good intentions, and focusing disagreements on systems vs. individual humans, this is for you.

Thanks Michelle Kim for these words.

What if I want to participate but I can't afford it?
Arrow (clickable)

If you don't have an employer or company budget that you can spend on this program, we are committed to finding you options. In the registration form, we'll ask you if you require a needs-based sponsorship from Soapbox Project.

our community is awesome, but don't take our word for it

Hear from your new friends

The accountability and inspiration I got from this cohort was exactly what I needed to make an impact during my day-to-day job. I wrote myself a new job description, got leadership buy-in, and even kept going after I got a "no" thanks to encouragement from this community!

Before joining my cohort, I was feeling isolated — I spend most of my time at work and didn’t know how my coworkers were feeling about the climate crisis. Having done this session, I’ve taken the steps to connect with my colleagues. I feel a far greater sense of belonging at work. If I didn’t have this cohort, I definitely wouldn’t have the courage, inclination, or information to know how to talk about climate change at work.

Having our cohort as a "practice arena" and actually talk through the script of social change made me a more confident and capable activist.

Soapbox Project has been such a crucial part of my journey in launching [my regenerative food company]. Even if you don't agree with everything being said, the community provides a safe and diverse space to discuss social and environmental justice, equity, and other complicated topics. This community is truly a special place.

Launched Ojaswe, her regenerative food company, and gained confidence as a climate leader by co-leading Soapbox's Climate Friendly Food cohort

Over this cohort, I've really developed a sense of "being in this together". Even on weeks where I haven't been able to make progress, hearing others share their updates keeps the momentum and accountability. This component has been the most valuable and motivating for me. I highly recommend Soapbox Project's cohorts for anyone looking to make a difference beyond themselves.
