Mitigation, Adaptation, Resilience
Seaside's Climate Action Program's mission is to advance climate mitigation, adaptation, and resilience strategies which decrease human impact on the environment and preserve the natural systems critical to life on earth.
Connects with people and communities towards a common goal of climate action, and encourages solutions through individual and collective action
Community action connects with local coalition groups and national climate action groups, and helps inspire communities to actively participate in the fight against climate change. We promote and facilitate collective action locally and internationally through outreach and activism successfully creating a guide for climate action.
One of our core strategies is called the "Vote for the Planet Campaign" where we research candidates who have positively impacted environmental sustainability through the support of policies and other actions. This is a good resource for voters who are looking to “Vote for the Planet”.
Advances and implements renewable energy technologies, policies, and adaption
We specialize in collecting and analyzing information and data regarding renewable energy technologies, relevant state policies and programs, emissions-reduction strategies, and standards in order to promote education on sustainable practices.
The "State Snapshot Profiles" provide a resource for the general public to find information on their state’s renewable energy and climate action policies, as well as incentive programs to switch to renewable technologies.
The Consumer Guidelines Report offers an in-depth analysis of each state’s energy consumption and production trends, available renewable energy programs and technologies, and a cost-savings analysis that illustrates the long-term benefits of switching to electricity generated from renewable sources.
Nature Based Solutions
Reduces green house gas (GHG) emissions and helps to make the world more resilient to the impacts of climate change.
Our world’s natural ecosystems, like its forests and wetlands, are essential to our way of life. They help to sustain our food supply, protect us from natural disasters, boost our economies, and contribute to the health of our environments. Nature-based solutions uses these tools provided by nature to address challenges such as climate change, biodiversity loss, water pollution, food security and many more.
We are focused on protecting, sustainably managing, and restoring natural and modified ecosystems in ways that provide both societal benefits and the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions. We are working on releasing a guide to help everyday citizens take steps to implement smaller scale nature-based solutions in their own homes and lives.
Climate Change Newsletter
Educates the Seaside community on important climate and energy related issues and outlines how readers can take action themselves
Our Climate Change Newsletter, called "C-Change" highlights the importance of Seaside’s mission by covering climate news as it unfolds. Our articles cover various topics regarding human-caused climate change, focusing on the fossil fuel industry. In each monthly newsletter, we provide readers with an understanding of our environmental impacts.
While climate news can be overwhelming, C-Change emphasizes our wins, not just our losses, and provides readers with a sense of hope and inspiration to take action and join our cause!
Condo Decarbonization in Cape Ann Report 2023
Community Action, Seaside Sustainability, Cape Ann Climate Coalition, TownGreen
This project aimed to examine how condo owners of Cape Ann felt about condo decarbonization and if they thought they had adequate resources. Working with members of the Cape Ann community, we found that there may be little interest in decarbonizing condos due to a lack of resources and barriers such as money, time, condo relationships, politics, and available programs.
