Climate Council of Greater Kansas City
The Climate Council of Greater Kansas City was formed in response to the urgency we face regarding global warming, and in recognition of the need for concerted, collective action on a community-wide level to address this crisis. Our goal is to support and expand the important work already happening in the Kansas City metro area through partnering with individuals, organizations, businesses, legislators and others in taking bold, effective action and assisting others in joining together through this platform. We offer free educational programming designed to inspire community action, and support advocacy for meaningful change at the local and regional level. We are all needed, and we all have a role to play. By joining together, we can more effectively address the important issues facing us today, and create healthy, just and sustainable Kansas City area communities.
