We are Harvard alumni, family, and friends seeking to make a positive impact on environmental issues worldwide.


Our mission

The Harvard Alumni Alliance for the Environment (HAAE) promotes and encourages awareness, intellectual engagement, networking, and partnerships aimed at addressing environmental issues around the world and fostering solutions together that will ensure a healthy and sustainable future for Earth and all of its inhabitants.

Who we are

A volunteer-driven nonprofit organization, The HAAE is a worldwide community of Harvard alumni, family, and friends who are dedicated to environmental sustainability. Our Members include people of all ages, fields, and walks of life – with experts, enthusiasts, and newcomers alike – who share in common both our Harvard roots and a genuine concern for Earth's future. We engage in learning and the sharing of knowledge, experiences, ideas, research, and best practices with each other and the world at large. In so doing, we hope to advance our collective understanding of the complex issues we face, and inspire collaborations to solve them.

Who we are not

We believe that honesty and transparency are important. Please note that the Harvard Alumni Alliance for the Environment is a neutral organization, and does not partake in political or activist efforts. Also, while we may promote Harvard and its people, programs, and partners, the HAAE is not funded in any way by Harvard University or its affiliate schools or partners, and does not represent the President and Fellows of Harvard University or the Harvard Alumni Association.
