We build the capacity of communities—cities, towns, counties, metropolitan regions and rural areas—to advance, accelerate and scale-up local solutions to the global challenges of climate protection and sustainable development.
Our team believes climate change demands a comprehensive approach. That’s why we work with committed people to transform their communities, engage their citizens, strengthen their institutions, and enhance their resources and investments.
Across the country, a range of economic and environmental disruptions are wreaking havoc on infrastructure, economies and people. Our team is focused on building community resilience, so that communities can not only bounce back quickly, but bounce forward to improved environmental, social and economic health and wellbeing.

Clean Energy Cities
As a global community, we must transition to 100% renewable energy by 2050 to stave off the worst impacts of climate disruption and preserve a habitable planet for our children and grandchildren. We believe cities can help lead the way towards clean energy and we’re working to accelerate this movement. Learn More
Regional Climate Action
Regional collaboration is changing how things work when taking on some of the biggest climate challenges in the world. We place heavy emphasis on building the skills practitioners need to develop effective, integrated solutions, including systems thinking, collaboration and consensus-building, partnership-building and effective communications.

I wanted you and the rest of your team to know that these particular two and a half days were the most interesting, engaging and productive days I have ever spent at a conference-type event. The design, content and participant mix was beyond fantastic, as were the mixer breakfasts, huddles, and table assignments... Thank you, thank you, thank you!–Sabrina Campbell, Program Coordinator
