What We Do
At ELC, our work is driven by 3 Goals:
1. Support the implementation and uptake of climate change mitigation and adaptation strategies by municipalities and community members.
2. Build capacity at a variety of levels to empower individuals to communities to become self-sufficiencient.
3. Strengthen the local sense of connection to land and to community.
In 2023, we are working towards these goals by . . .

Sharing information about local climate policy
Starting this Spring, we will be sharing information about local climate policy here on our website and via our social media. We recognize that our local governments don’t always make it the easiest to find up-to-date information so we want to help you out! Let us scour their websites for all the information you need to be in the know about what our local governments are doing to take climate action and how you can get involved.

ELC will be bringing a Repair Café to PG this Summer, stay tuned for more information!
Creating space for conversations about Solastalgia
