Community Resilience

Ocean flooding and extreme weather threaten Boston’s existence, and communities of color are impacted first the worst.

BCAN participated in the Community Advisory Committee for ClimateReady Boston, the City’s climate adaptation planning process. Through this process, we worked with the City to identify implementable neighborhood projects that promote energy efficiency and renewables. In a related effort, as a grantee of the Rockefeller Foundation’s 100 Resilient Cities Initiative, the City invited BostonCAN to participate in its Resilience Steering Committee, another opportunity to advance implementation of the Climate Action Plan.

BCAN is dedicated to making sure that the implementation of Boston’s Climate Action Plan addresses racial and economic justice.
