League Climate Action Across California
More than half of our 62 local Leagues are already active or beginning action on climate change.
- Leagues in municipal areas are working on "smart growth" including education, participation and advocacy in municipal climate action plans, green infrastructure, energy efficiency and sustainability, Community Choice Aggregation, a move away from natural gas to all-electric in buildings, and transportation.
- Leagues in more rural areas are working on carbon conservation and drawdown using natural systems, building healthy soils, and protecting our forests.
- Coastal communities are working on sea-level rise, including impacts and the need for new zoning restrictions.
- Climate change education is happening across the state, with Leagues hosting climate events, partnering with others, holding workshops and forums, speaking out at government meetings, and a host of other education opportunities.
If you want to be part of any of these efforts email climatechange [at] lwvc.org and we'll help you share resources and/or participate.
