Launch Climate Action Projects in Your Community

One of the best ways to inspire personal action and the commitment to change is to simply give people something to do. Land trusts are already engaging in a variety of mitigation and adaptation activities to reduce long-term climate change and its impacts to the lands they steward and the communities that rely on these resources.

Different projects will appeal to different sectors of your community. Consider your audience when launching a new project:

  • Conservation projects with tangible results motivate first-time participants and/or children, who are able to see how their efforts have directly improved their homes, communities or local environments.
  • More experienced or committed participants, including older children and teens, will also be inspired by projects with less tangible results. For example, these participants may be eager to advocate for a local policy change that would reduce carbon emissions in their community.
  • Consider allowing your most experienced and committed participants to create and lead their own community climate action projects.
