We need a San Diego Green New Deal.

Our region is not on track to meet climate targets that represent the minimum action needed to secure a safe and livable future. Recent climate science reports, including the landmark United Nations IPCC Report, Global Warming of 1.5 Degrees Celsius, say we need to go beyond what local and state laws commit us to — we need a plan to reach net-zero emissions.  

Shaping the vision: Community Planning Process

In June, July, and August of 2019, we convened a wide cross section of activists, community leaders, thought leaders, organizations, and representatives from elected offices to help shape the vision for the San Diego Green New Deal and chart the path forward with strategies and a work plan.  Click here to view the results of the community planning process. 

Our Workplan Identified Four Working Groups:

1) JEDI (Justice, Equity, Diversity, Inclusion) 2) Transforming Political Power 3) Building Awareness and Support 4) Activist Engagement and Operations

Our Vision for San Diego:

A San Diego region that achieves zero carbon by 2035 through a fair and just transition for workers and communities of concern, the creation of good family-sustaining jobs, and the development of affordable, equitable, and inclusive communities powered by 100% clean electricity. Learn more here.
