Rebuilding Green Post-Sandy
We are stepping up to help the East Coast rebuild more resiliently following Hurricane Sandy. As part of our response to the devastation from Sandy, we are working on these three initiatives:
In the wake of Hurricane Katrina just seven years ago, we quickly responded with a vision and commitment to help New Orleans rebuild the city green. TIME magazine lauded our response to Hurricane Katrina by writing, "No organization is doing more to green New Orleans than Global Green USA." We aim to have a similar impact in NY and NJ.
Global Green USA remains committed to protecting coastal cities like NY from sea level rise by reducing greenhouse gas emissions. An estimated 150 million Americans live in or near coastal cities and we must also address the urgent need to fight climate change and better protect coastal cities at risk from sea level rise, which worsens storm surge in severe weather events.
Tell us what you're doing to fight climate change and send us a photo representing a city you love at risk due to sea level rise with our I AM Challenge. Together, we can protect our coastlines and work together for a more sustainable future.
Help us lead the region in rebuilding and support our important work with a donation to Global Green USA.
