Climate action is still important! Global scientists are giving us clear paths forward to flatten the curves for new COVID 19 infections and for rising green house gas emissions to prevent crossing dangerous tipping points.
City-level solutions are key for solving both the COVID 19 and climate crises given federal and state level gridlock.
Cities facing budget shortfalls and who are adjusting to new ways of working and meeting are looking for innovative ways to maintain their momentum on climate, energy, equity and resilience.
Through our Resilient Cities and Communities Coalition we are empowering
