Adapting to a warming world does not mean surrendering to climate change.
Our goals with Acclimate Colorado are to drive policy changes that will help Colorado communities become more resilient in the face of climate change, and to improve health equity for the people most profoundly and unfairly affected.
What We Can Do
- Write policy for climate adaptation.
- Create assessment tools for Colorado's leaders.
- Work with those leaders to create local adaptation plans that center equity.
- Coordinate, convene, and collaborate with Colorado partners interested in this work.
