NYC Climate Coalition
Together, we can create a climate smart New York City.
The NYC Climate Coalition is a program of the Human Impacts Institute dedicated to climate awareness and action in New York City. The Climate Coalition builds the capacity of New Yorkers in addressing root causes of climate change and in preparing for impacts of a changing climate on our City. Our goal is to unite New Yorkers of all ages and backgrounds to address current and future climate change issues affecting our community through networking, resource exchange, joint advocacy, and hands-on education.

Climate Change is an urgent reality that requires immediate action to adapt to and mitigate its impacts. The NYC Climate Coalition facilitates an increase in public awareness and understanding of climate change issues and climate impact preparedness.
Sharing Climate Resources
With each climate smart action, the NYC Climate Coalition maintains replicability and resource-sharing at its core. This means open-source information transfer to others for replication locally and globally.
