About the Network

What is the Network?

The RAPID Climate Action Network is a network of dedicated climate professionals, organizations, and local government leaders who want to see greater climate impact, faster. The Network activities are designed to catalyze multi-sector and multi-jurisdiction climate efforts to create a shift from the siloed and incremental longer-term climate solutions to a “no excuses” approach with a prioritized set of the most effective, near-term actions.

Why do we need the RAPID Climate Action Network?

The number of climate organizations and activities is substantial, especially in California. However, research and experience indicate that there is limited cross-pollination and large gaps between thinking and action among the diverse entities involved in climate initiatives. The RAPID Climate Action Network provides  a backbone organization to better align collective resources and activities within region; leading to a clarification of priorities, greater effectiveness of efforts, and better communication of benefits within the broader community.
