Global Cool Cities Alliance
A non-profit dedicated to advancing policies and actions that increase the solar reflectance of our buildings and pavements as a low cost way to promote cool buildings, cool cities, and, most importantly, to mitigate the effects of climate change through global cooling.
An exciting collaboration between NYC Service, the NYC Department of Buildings and the Community Environmental Center to promote and facilitate the cooling of New York City’s rooftops.
Since 1892, the Sierra Club has been working to protect communities, wild places, and the planet itself. We are the oldest, largest, and most influential grassroots environmental organization in the United States.
An international campaign building a movement to unite the world around solutions to the climate crisis--the solutions that science and justice demand. Our focus is on the number 350--as in parts per million CO2in the atmosphere. If we can't get below that, scientists say, the damage we're already seeing from global warming will continue and accelerate.
The Bowery Mission
The organization has served homeless and hungry New Yorkers since 1879, when its neighborhood came to define the term “skid row.” Their children’s programs, called Kids With A Promise, serve at-risk youth and began in 1894 by giving the children of recent immigrants the chance to escape the tenements in the summer.
Cool My Planet
A global, independent, multicultural and non party political initiative that intends: To involve communities and citizens in the fight against climate change through equivalent thermal credits. To undertake initiatives to promote greater environmental responsibility. To provide a forum for discussion of global warming and carbon footprint offset issues.
