Climate change conversation for faith-based organizations

Faith Based Workshop

Are you active in a faith organization? Are you interested in helping to mitigate the impacts of climate change?

Please join the City of Alameda and Community Action for a Sustainable Alameda (CASA) on Tuesday, September 26 at 6PM at the Alameda Free Library (1550 Oak Street). Light refreshments will be served. The workshop series is for members of Alameda faith organizations that would like to both green their places of worship and help their congregations green their homes and businesses.

What can the future of the Bay Area and its shorelines look like?

BayAdapt Survey

The Bay Area’s cultural and environmental diversity is what makes it an incredible place to live. From habitats to recreation, transportation to jobs, activity along our shoreline shapes our everyday life in the bay. No matter where we live in the Bay Area, we’re all connected to one another and the Bay.

But our shorelines and environments are changing. Sea levels are rising and threatening ecosystems, infrastructure, recreational spaces, businesses, houses, and communities.

What can the future look like in the context of this change? What does it mean for our region to adapt - to make changes - in a way that supports the things we love about where we live, now and into the future?

Please take this short survey to share your thoughts about the future of the shoreline and inform the development of the BCDC Regional Shoreline Adaptation Plan! Learn more about the plan here.

Are you ready for Energy Efficiency Day Oct. 4?


Energy Efficiency Day shines light on the many advantages of adopting efficient measures and behaviors that enable us to save money, reduce pollution, and create jobs. By participating in #EEDay2023 on October 4th, you can join us in taking small steps that add up to lasting comfort, better health, and lower energy costs. 

Energy efficiency doesn't mean we have to sacrifice, but it does enable us to use less energy to get the same job done. Using less energy enables us to stretch the electricity produced from emissions-free sources, such as wind and solar, further to keep our homes and businesses comfortable.
