The mission of Earth House, in Oakland, California, is to build healthy, just, and sustainable communities through education, training and multi-media communication tools.



Earth House was founded in 1990 by Dr. Margaret Paloma Pavel and currently conducts local, national and international projects in a variety of print and visual media (Journey to South Africa. Metropolitan Communities Leaders Reflect on the World Summit, a monograph; Voices from the Community: Smart Growth and Social Equity, a video; and Sustainable Solutions: Building Assets for Empowerment and Sustainable Development, a web-based video project of community-based projects around the globe).

Earth House has worked with a series of environmental sustainability groups in the Pacific Rim, including Cambodia and Japan, and in the US supporting organizations working on issues of health, justice, education, legal services and metropolitan development. Earth House media projects link communication, technology and social advocacy. Dr. Pavelís educational background includes graduate study at Harvard University and the London School of Economics.
