Futurewise mission and values public interest promote healthy communities and cities protect farmland forests shorelines
MissionFuturewise is a statewide public interest group working to promote healthy communities and cities while protecting farmland, forests and shorelines today and for future generations.
We are the only statewide group in Washington working to ensure that local governments manage growth responsibly. Founded in 1990, Futurewise has established an impressive track record on growth management issues as the state's primary advocate for smart growth policies.
Futurewise's organizing and advocacy work, public education and legal program, and the technical support that we provide local groups have become the foundation of good growth management in Washington.
In 2005, the organization changed its name from 1000 Friends of Washington to Futurewise to better represent the work that we stand for. Learn more about the name change.
