EOPA and the University of San Francisco jointly run a Certificate in Public Leadership program that expands lawmakers’ and civic leaders’ knowledge to effectively create, communicate, and implement policy through gaining a deeper understanding of emotional intelligence, leadership and management, public speaking, body language, value-based communications, legislative procedures, cyber security, and empathy-based fundraising, while connecting with elected officials who have had a significant impact on public policy. Lawmakers are asked to choose an environmental policy solution to use in the course and advocate for that policy during and after the in-person and virtual program

EOPA has a film production arm to educate lawmakers, the media, and the public through visual value-based communication to inspire climate action. Across our efforts, we promote equity and justice by working with officials elected in communities impacted by dangerous environmental policy decisions.  

EOPA in partnership with the University of San Francisco offers a Masters in Public Leadership
