Who We Are

Incorporated in 2018, SCEN believes that local organizations are best positioned to bring about equitable and sustainable energy systems across the Southeast when they share a common vision and collaborate with a broad range of partners. To effectively collaborate across multiple states and issue areas, the network aims to leverage our collective power to provide leadership, training, funding and rapid response to threats to our members.


Our mission is to provide strategic coordination among organizations in the Southeast to secure fair, just and science-based climate and energy policies. We strive to be the premier environmental network in the Southeast by advocating for, educating, responding to and empowering our members, frontline and low-income communities and communities of color.


Our vision is a powerful, inclusive, diverse, interconnected, nimble Southeastern climate movement that strengthens capability and enables organizations to maximize impacts at a local and regional level by creating a sense of urgency around equitable and just transition to clean and renewable energy sources, thereby building healthy, resilient and vibrant communities.
