Shattering Policymaking Silos
Community Climate Shift aims to rectify traditional, siloed policy processes by working alongside Community Based Organizations (CBOs) already deeply engaged with their communities. Our purpose is to ensure their perspectives and expertise are not only listened to but are the driving force in the policy design and implementation process, honoring their expertise and experiences.
Centering Community-Driven Solutions
Our approach gives community leaders direct access to policymakers, and guides policymakers in specific actions they can take to make building decarbonization strategies more inclusive and just.
We are specifically focused on the role buildings play in climate and communities, and the unique opportunity to leverage climate action toward better buildings in a way that also sets precedent for better policymaking that is rooted in community priorities.
Leveraging the Power of Partnerships
We seek to unlock the transformative solutions that emerge when communities have real input and co-governance of priorities and resources. Our goal is to activate and support a network of partners to collectively center climate justice and create processes that enhance community power and produce community-owned resources and policymaking.
