Community Climate Solutions

Do you want to make a difference on climate issues?
If so, thanks for thinking globally. Now, join us to act locally!
CCST creates a livable climate for all by:
  • Helping Wisconsin’s local governments and other institutions set and achieve just, equitable climate goals as fast as possible;
  • Helping Wisconsin’s residents increase their climate awareness, engagement, and action.

We’re already achieving significant results — see CCST Action Highlights for an overview — and with your help, we can do much more.

Acting Locally

Surrounding communities have made climate commitments — we want to help the officials leading these communities fulfill them. Citizen support is imperative in order to shift budget priorities, change current practices, and review all operations with a climate lens.

The Community Climate Solutions Team is organized into Community Working Groups that, through a variety of targeted sub-projects, help officials meet their commitments to combat climate change and inform citizens about existing problems and solutions.

Citizens’ Voices Matter

We recognize that not everyone can commit to regularly volunteering their time for climate action. That’s where our Action Participation List (APL) comes in. When you join the APL, our Community Working Groups will contact you about actions that are quick and easy but can have a big impact on local officials’ decision making. It takes only a few minutes, and we won’t clog your inbox!

Remember — without you, we’re always one person short to make change happen right here in our community. Join us in fighting for a livable climate and a clean energy future!
