There's Action Out There

There's Action Out There

By working on climate change, I know that spending each day confronted by news of increasingly harmful impacts and political polarization can be dispiriting to say the least. It’s important for all of us (myself included) to be reminded of the innovative ways that people are taking action to raise awareness and inspire change. That’s why I’d like to direct your attention to the Climate Access Campaign Gallery.

The motto of Climate Access is “sharing what works” and we want to share the many imaginative ways that individuals and groups are educating the public about climate change and motivating people to act, whether it’s to make a shift in one’s own life or to participate in civic engagement. We’re compiling examples of inventive climate outreach campaigns in our Campaign Gallery and we hope that it will serve as a source of inspiration.

Here is a sample of what you’ll find in the Gallery:

  • The Crazy Sustainable Commute – a project that encourages people to think creatively about non-traditional environmentally friendly ways to travel to work.


  • Broadway: 1000 Steps – a public art installation in NYC that aims to shift awareness about climate change and sustainability.




We will stay on the lookout for the latest and greatest campaigns, but we also want to hear from you. Have you heard of  – or are you involved in – an inspiring public outreach campaign? It can be a local activity that’s being organized in your neighborhood or a large-scale international event, or anything in between. To share a campaign with the Climate Access network, apply to become a member or log in if you’ve already signed up. In addition to promoting the campaigns in the gallery, we aim to facilitate discussion among climate practitioners about what worked and what didn’t.

So, let us know what campaigns inspire you and keep the blues away.
