Hidden Heroes of the Greenbelt

SEPTEMBER 23, 2021

Save the date, Thursday, September 23, 2021 at 5 p.m. for Greenbelt Alliance’s annual benefit, Hidden Heroes of the Greenbelt. This year, we pay tribute to the region’s often unseen, dedicated climate activists. During the event, we’ll premiere a powerful short film that tells the stories of these heroes, highlighting the impact they’re making on communities throughout the region. Stay tuned for more details!

This benefit supports our work to educate, advocate, and collaborate to ensure the Bay Area’s lands and communities are resilient to a changing climate.


The hidden heroes

Greenbelt Alliance has invited local elected officials, partner organizations, and our supporters to nominate a local government staff person from cities and counties around the region who work at the intersection of land use and climate change within the following categories:

Nature-Based Climate Adaptation

Heroes who work on policies and projects that leverage nature-based solutions to build climate resilience.

Planning for Resilience

Heroes who work in planning and community engagement to implement equitable, climate resilience strategies.

Abundant Climate-Smart Housing

Heroes who work to build more homes in the Bay Area, close to jobs and transit, that are affordable for all.
