Growing Climate Solutions seeks to educate Southwest Floridians about how and why our climate is changing, as well as the broad range of impacts our community will experience in the coming decades. This knowledge is fundamental to motivating collective action now.
Some climate solutions will require public sector commitment and investment. Growing Climate Solutions knows that civic leaders will move forward on these actions when stakeholders voice their support for resilience measures. By educating our citizens, our democracy works better.
Recent surveys have shown that our residents believe climate change will impact them, but many are unsure about how to help. So, we educate residents, businesses, institutions and local governments on the type of actions they can take to be good stewards of our environment, to prepare for and to mitigate climate impacts.
As organizations plan and implement sustainability projects and programs, Growing Climate Solutions can offer guidance and recognition for these efforts, turning organizations into community role models for a “path to positive” future.
