Focus Areas

Climate Change

The EinStrong Foundation researches and conducts advocacy for top-down and bottom-up solutions to climate change in the United States and around the world. Solutions must include both “sticks” – legal requirements and enforcement – and “carrots” – benefits for taking corrective action.

Policy development is key too. Financial benefits, for example, in the form of subsidies and the withdrawal thereof, are key since money is an important driver of action when people and their institutions do not demonstrate sufficient understanding of the urgency of the problem. Money still talks.

An important step towards sustainability is to use less of everything and to recycle or reuse as many items as possible. Our seemingly insatiable need for more goods and services must be changed. Corporations are expected and required to continue to obtain growth, but the world only has so many resources. We have to carefully, but urgently, focus on the fact that endless growth is simply not sustainable and perhaps not even physically possible.


The EinStrong Foundation believes in science, knowledge, and education. Education is of obvious importance to all societal issues around the world. This is particularly so when it comes to girls and young women.

In addition to the intrinsic benefit of a nation having a more educated workforce, educating young girls also has demonstrated positive effects on the reduction of population overgrowth in the developing world.

About 70% percent of the global poor aged 15 and older have no schooling or only some basic education. This has to change. We provide educational, student and family support to schools in Cambodia and Nepal. The EinStrong Foundation supports climate change law and earth science institutions in the United States.

Poverty Alleviation

About 10% of the world’s population (approx. 700 million people) survives on less than $1.90 a day, which is extreme poverty. 71% percent of the global population still live in low-income or poor conditions (less than $10 a day). During the Covid pandemic, more than 100 million people sank into poverty. The world’s richest 1% has taken more than a third of all additional wealth accumulated since 1995, while the bottom 50% captured just 2%. New research estimates that climate change will drive 68-132 million more people into poverty by 2030.

Climate change is a particularly acute threat for countries in Sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia — the regions where most of the global poor are concentrated. However, there is hope in this area. Setting aside the Covid pandemic increase in poverty, global poverty has decreased by half over the last decade. The extreme difference in earnings and accumulated wealth should be evened out to a more ethical and functionable level. Even many billionaires acknowledge that their wealth is too extreme and that revenue sharing and revenue recycling must be stepped up.

We are investigating technologically efficient ways of distributing financial aid across borders and shifting revenues from participating corporations and individuals in the Global North to the Global South.  These solutions will bypass governments and other middleman steps to an appropriate extent and thus aim to reduce corruption.
