Providing reliable and objective information helps residents understand the causes, impacts and solutions to climate change. Involving the public in the development of climate change policies and programs builds community awareness and support for local actions that reduce greenhouse gas emissions, including the co-benefits of actions that reduce climate change.
Cities and counties are leading by example and undertaking a
range of activities to create more sustainable communities.
These case stories review different local agencies’ experiences
related to promoting community and individual activity.
These resources will help inform your efforts to promote
community and individual action. Resources include links to
organizations, state and federal agencies, tools, guides and tip
sheets to support your work. You’ll also find examples of
programs and materials from cities and counties.
The Beacon Award is sponsored by the Statewide Energy Efficiency
Collaborative, which offers no-cost resources to support the
energy and climate initiatives of California local governments.
