Global Green Community & Climate Action Center (CCAC)
New Orleans will be the first American city lost to sea level rise unless dramatic measures are taken. It is ground zero for Climate Change. Global Green's Community & Climate Action Center serves as a model for climate resilience within both New Orleans, and other cities around the globe.
The CCAC is a hub for educational opportunities with a focus on climate change, environmental equity and coastal resilience. It is located in the Holy Cross neighborhood of New Orleans’ Lower 9th Ward. Global Green works with numerous partners to bring programming to the CCAC.
The space is available to groups for workshops and educational events. Groups can be local, regional, national or international. The CCAC is an ideal venue for sharing mitigation and adaptation strategies for climate impacts with coastal communities along the Gulf - and worldwide - as well as with other geographies threatened by global warming.
The CCAC houses a green building resource information station and is developing capacity to offer additional community resources.
The Community & Climate Action Center is an ideal venue for your organization's next convening.
A Catalytic Project
Climate change is significantly impacting people and industries in the Greater New Orleans region, but there is a lack of community understanding and tangible opportunities for taking action.
The Community & Climate Action Center (CCAC) will serve as a hub for communication around solutions to climate change through mitigation and adaptation planning. The Center aims to create powerful connection, and empower communities to take their own steps in climate action.
