Community Climate Solutions
Community Climate Solutions is a non-profit with the mission to empower and engage people and communities on climate solutions. We have solutions to climate change that are now becoming affordable and accessible to everyone and they can also save families money and improve local quality of life. Most people are concerned about climate change and want to help, but don’t know what to do. We provide online tools and engagement programs to make it simple, fun and easy for people to learn about climate solutions and specific, practical actions they can take. We also provide resources to help users complete actions and connect them in a community based social network to work together, share ideas and resources and work in teams. We are working with cities across the U.S., helping them empower their communities, track their success and help create a safer, healthier future. You can see one of our live city sites at paloaltogocarbonfree.org.
