Our mission is to demonstrate sustainability in action and mobilize change agents to accelerate solutions.
The Alliance Center was founded in 2004 as the first shared space in Denver and since then has effectively become the hub of sustainability for the Front Range of Colorado. Since our founding, The Alliance Center has been a sustainability leader, convening government, academia, nonprofit, for-profit, media and community leaders to accelerate solutions.
The Alliance Center itself serves as the convening hub for the state's leading change agents. Our green event space hosts over 450 events each year, bringing approximately 17,000 people through our doors. We have over 50 tenant organizations that are all working on some aspect of sustainability be it economic, environmental and/or social. Together, with our values-aligned tenant organizations, we are catalyzing solutions to create thriving communities, a strong democracy, an economy that works for everyone and a healthy planet. Our role is to convene and mobilize our network of non-profit organizations, for-profit businesses, government agencies, academic institutions and community members to create sustainability-focused solutions through collaboration.
