Now more than ever, It’s so important for everyone to know about their local climate situation.
What LocalClimate is: LocalClimate.org is about the changing climate – in the city where you live.
It’s an innovative site that gives you current, wide-ranging info about your town’s changing climate and local energy transition.
Our Mission: To quicken the global energy transition by getting more folks interested and participating in their local energy transition.
Our Tasks: a) provide current info on each city’s climate change projections and impacts and b) keep track of each city’s progress on it’s local energy transition.
Our Premise: Seeing the global emergency from the local level makes it relevant and relatable to everyone.
About our organization
We’re a climate communication group set on boosting the Great Energy Transition, one city at a time.
Right now, LocalClimate.org is a tiny group. founder/creator, an on-call website volunteer, and a growing number of high school and college students who’ll be writing about their cities and climate change. Until we receive 501(c)3 tax-exempt status, we’re asking only for small donations to support this potentially very impactful project.
About our Expertise: We are concerned local students, great at research and communication.
Students can quickly become local climate change experts. They’ll create useful, interesting content about their town’s changing climate and energy transition.
Writers / content creators of LocalClimate.org live in your community. They spread the word about their local climate situation by creating and maintaining their city’s page on LocalClimate.org. Local residents write about their city’s climate situation because that’s where they can quickly have a great influence on their community’s response to climate change.
By learning and educating their communities, local students become local authorities on their city’s changing climate and local energy transition. Local students can organize a LocalClimate.org group project for school, or participate individually. See, “Local Climate Writer’s Guide.”
