Greenbelt Alliance is shifting the perceptions and actions of leaders across government, communities, and businesses to protect and prioritize people and lands in the face of the climate crisis.
With every policy decision and inclusive planning process that prepares the Bay Area for wildfires, floods, and droughts, we succeed. With every additional acre of natural and working land restored to reap climate-resilience benefits, we succeed. With every new climate SMART development we endorse that cities then approve to build for the communities of the future, we succeed.
We do this by researching and communicating solutions that will protect more natural and working lands and by prioritizing the conservation of our highest-value landscapes. We do this by driving local, regional, and state-level advocacy efforts—building local partnerships and coalitions with residents, community groups, and nonprofits. We do this by supporting development that creates thriving, resilient neighborhoods with ready access to transit and housing choices for everyone who lives in the Bay Area.
