what we do
A City Team is a coalition of residents in a city who work together and with community allies to support local solutions to the climate crisis.
A City Team can engage in any number of actions to support strong local climate action. Typically, a City Team focuses on one or two major campaigns at a time, which could span in length from several months to a year or more.

why we do it
Powerful levers of change exist at the local level.
City governments have substantial authority to fight climate change through building codes and ordinances, infrastructure investments, and fossil fuel divestment. But governments are not the only relevant local institutions—for example, City Teams may organize climate education assemblies for local schools or sponsor speakers at community events. Locally-focused teams build constructive partnerships and a sense of community.
our city teams
The Menlo Park City team is focused on ensuring the successful implementation of the Menlo Park Climate Action Plan and is working to eliminate the use of fossil gas and fossil fuels in Menlo Park, as well as support a transition to electric vehicles while reducing miles traveled.
Our mission is to support local solutions to the climate crisis that protect the health and economic vitality of the San Mateo community and promote equity for all.
We educate and organize the residents of Palo Alto to advocate for robust climate policy decisions at the City and regional level. We also provide education on ways to take action at the personal level to protect Earth's climate. Learn more about our team or our current Switch to Electric campaign here.
