Local Government Climate Hubs
From developing climate action plans to monitoring implementation actions, local governments are using websites to communicate with and educate their constituents on climate change and sustainability. For example, the City of San Francisco’s Urban EcoMap site contains an interactive tool for individuals to set goals, choose strategies, and chart their progress in reducing greenhouse gas emission. While, San Mateo County’s Sustainability Hub offers numerous resources targeted to residents, government, and businesses users seeking sustainability best practices.
Explore the sites below to learn more about the innovative and diverse approaches local governments are taking.
