How to solve problems while protecting the climate
What matters more, poverty today or the climate in the future? What’s more urgent, building a just society or a low carbon economy?
If those sound like false choices to you, we agree. In fact, we think that the biggest opportunity to win on climate change is also the biggest opportunity for public health, social justice and well-being.
Strategies that improve health, well-being, social justice and resilience can also reduce greenhouse gas emissions and protect the climate. We call the implementation of such solutions multisolving.
We can help you take action on climate change while harnessing co-benefits such as improving health, resilience, and more
Maybe you have been multisolving for your whole career. Maybe you have a small budget and big goals and you are trying to get more done for the same dollar. Maybe you know that to win on any of these issues you need to bring together diverse groups and constituencies.
Whatever your situation, we want you to have the tools to leverage the power of the connections you see and the connections you are forging, between issues, and between groups of people.
We’ve collected resources aimed at making your life at little easier and your work more powerful than ever.
