Description

Local Climate Change and Environmental Action Volunteer Team Member

Inspired by Accelerator member organization, Color Brighton Green, Color Your Community Green (CYCG) aims to connect and organize concerned individuals, by municipality or neighborhood, to form a network of climate-focused citizen action teams that will:

  • Identify locally-relevant, high-impact climate solutions and develop strategies to move those solutions forward using the CYCG “Toolkit”;
  • Advocate for environmental justice and equitable climate solutions to be implemented at the municipal level;
  • Determine the best path forward for their community, with support from the Climate Solutions Accelerator, fellow CYCG teams, and other climate organizations in the region.

To achieve these goals, the twelve active CYCG teams perform various activities ranging from planting trees, organizing litter pick-ups, educating community members on skills like composting or creating healthy yards, and learning about and advocating for local climate solutions to board members and government officials.

We hope you join us as we strive to create greener communities, a greener region, and a greener planet. Together, we are the solution to climate change!
