The Bay Area has a major problem: we aren’t ready for climate change. So Greenbelt Alliance is rising to the challenge by educating people, advocating for bold change, and collaborating to address the climate crisis.
Over Greenbelt Alliance’s 60-year history, we have stewarded this region’s beautiful natural landscapes while promoting the growth needed for thriving communities for generations to come. As a result, today, almost 3.3 million acres of the Bay Area’s nine counties are protected open spaces.
Today, we are leveraging our expertise in land-use policy advocacy and regional collaboration to realize a climate-resilient Bay Area. To us, this looks like communities and people thriving in the places they live, work, and play. Staying safe during climate disasters. Connecting with open spaces in new and powerful ways. Suffering less and recovering quickly after the next wildfire, flood, or drought. All thanks to equitable solutions drawing on the powerful role of nature.
The path toward this future is complex and more urgent than ever. At Greenbelt Alliance, we focus on data-driven and innovative policy solutions fostering much-needed regional collaboration to plan and invest in resilient communities.
