About American Climate Futures
American Climate Futures is an initiative by Forum for the Future to ensure the needs and voices of those most impacted by climate change in the US are at the forefront of goal-setting, planning, and solutions development — while also challenging, and accelerating the process of addressing, the systemic inequalities that got us here in the first place.
Join a diverse and committed group of change-makers across the United States to learn from each other, collectively identify the entrenched barriers to climate justice, and co-design a community-centered, system-wide approach to a just and transformational response to the climate crisis. We invite you to reach out if you are interested in learning more about this work and how you can get involved.
