What if we focused on the future we want:
A great life, in a great community, and a great country
We'd find solutions that will improve our lives and help us deal with climate impacts, lower our energy bills, improve our commute, give us energy independence, create good jobs, and support vibrant communities.
We'd find solutions people want.
Better Climate Plans
The big difference is to design a climate plan from the bottom up.
- Start with people and communities. They are our clients.
- Work with community groups, organizations, and businesses. They are our allies. Find common ground and a common vision.
- Develop integrated solutions. Climate friendly solutions that support communities and local economies.
- Collaborate. Find where you can lead, where you need help, and how you can help others.
- Find solutions people want. If climate solutions are to be effective in the long run, they must be easy, affordable, and (above all) desirable.
A Thousand Climate Plans
In the end, what we need is not just one big climate plan, but a thousand interconnected plans from communities, businesses, organizations, and governments. And a thousand plans leads to the level of action and commitment needed to get us to the future we want.
