Climate Planning & Technical Assistance

The Challenge

Many Angelenos — like many Americans — are unaware of the climate impacts we face locally, and they see climate change as a global challenge that is beyond our reach. We know that local action to fight climate change is making our communities better, but we need to engage Angelenos in the process.


Connecting, convening, and communicating — that’s how we engage Angelenos on working together on programs and projects to improve lives and communities.
