Community Engagement

We can go further, together!

Our Climate. Our Community.


Leading on climate will require all of us to take action, together, in the places we work, live, learn, and play. 

To know where this journey will take us, however, the community must come together to define success. C3 is committed to supporting the broad-based community engagement needed to support this process – to define success that reflects our entire community.  

C3 will bring neighborhoods, businesses, faith communities, nonprofits, institutions, local government, and other diverse groups together to forge a path forward and achieve unity of purpose. 

We believe that this collective path is the road to meaningful, long lasting change.  


If you want to go quickly, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.
