Community Climate Transitions is the newest collective in Tamarack’s Vibrant Communities. We are building a network of communities that are committed to tackling climate change through a multi-solving approach that advances social, environmental and economic goals simultaneously. We support communities to localize the Sustainable Development Goals and take a holistic view to improve health and social outcomes, building resilience, promoting justice and equity, reducing their carbon footprint, and strengthening economic vitality.

We do this by hosting a community of practices, webinars, and events, producing publications that share our learnings and supporting our members with specialized coaching.

The Tamarack team is here to support you on your journey. Reach out to Laura Schnurr to learn more.
