Solar Resiliency for Community Centers

Does your community want greener, more cohesive, and more vibrant neighborhoods?
Is your community interested in increasing resilience in the face of extreme weather events?
Are there significant projects on the horizon that your community wants to make sustainable?

The Global Green Resilient Neighborhood Initiative is bringing technical assistance to disadvantaged communities in four (4) cities this year to improve their resilience to the impacts of climate change, and support local capacity building for climate mitigation. The project is co-led by participating community groups and/or city agencies. Global Green takes a community-based approach to neighborhood planning, aimed at educating and empowering local residents on how to take action to help their communities adapt and respond to local climate change impacts.

Here's more on the program:
