SEPTEMBER 30, 2021
From the devastating impacts of climate change that are already being felt across the region to the urgent need for housing and climate-smart development—Greenbelt Alliance is coming up with creative solutions to keep communities safe and position our most vulnerable neighbors at the center of our actions. We need to summon our inner “superpowers” to solidify our vision and work together to build a climate-resilient Bay Area.
Each year we bring people together to celebrate this critical work. And what better way to do that than to highlight the champions among us who are working every day, often behind the scenes, to build a better Bay Area for all?
Join us on September 30, at 4 p.m. (PT), for Hidden Heroes of the Greenbelt, a benefit hosted by Greenbelt Alliance that honors the bold leaders in local government working to ensure greater climate resilience for the Bay Area. During the virtual celebration, we will premiere three short films that tell the stories of these heroes and highlight the impact they’re making in communities throughout the region.
The hidden heroes
This year’s Hidden Heroes of the Greenbelt awards are being given to three extraordinary leaders from across the Bay Area whose stories are inspiring and contribution to climate and land-use policies will leave a legacy of positive impact in the region:
Hidden Hero of the Greenbelt recognized for fostering nature-based climate adaptation
Hidden Hero of the Greenbelt recognized for planning for resilience
Hidden Hero of the Greenbelt recognized for promoting abundant climate-SMART housing
You can be a hero too
We are all on a journey together to solve the common issues affecting our communities and our natural world. Everyone has a role to play, a contribution to offer, and something unique to deliver toward a solution. Our Hidden Heroes of the Greenbelt event is Greenbelt Alliance’s biggest fundraising event of the year. For this year’s event, we hope to raise $250,000 in support of our work to educate, advocate, and collaborate to ensure the Bay Area’s lands and communities are resilient to a changing climate. (individual and corporate opportunities available)
