Build climate literacy, political will, and awareness of climate action opportunities to your community.

When it comes to implementing climate change solutions, local communities are powerfully positioned to create an undercurrent of momentum and ambitious pathways to change that our national and global leaders cannot easily ignore.

Climate Generation has developed a model and method for hosting community convenings on climate change. Convenings elevate stories of individuals engaged in climate change, build community-led innovations and local solutions, and create opportunities for people to discover their personal connections to climate change to inspire meaningful action.

Organize a Convening in Your Community!
