Beyond Today was founded in 2003 to create and nurture projects for a more sustainable Chicago, focusing on environmentaism and social justice.

Based in the Lincoln Square neighborhood, Beyond Today was founded by members of Riverbank Neighbors who sought to work together on broader topics including:

Advocacy for environmentally sustainable solutions

  • Organic mosquito management.
  • The Green Dinner series  These were moderated dinner conversations with special guests from various Chicago environmental and social justice organizations.  Over 50 events were held in Chicago homes of Beyond Today’s community members.
  • Environmental Internships:  For three years, Beyond Today had an intern program in which several students worked with us.
  • and much more (website update in progress)
