Kresge’s Environment Program hosts a peer-learning event in Berkeley, Calif. with grantees from its Climate Resilience and Urban Opportunity Initiative Jan. 26-28.
Participants include representatives from 17 nonprofit organizations awarded nine-month planning grants in late 2014. The grants support the development of multiyear work plans aimed at driving large-scale shifts in how their communities approach and execute climate-resilience strategies. Additional participants include Kresge partners involved in placed-based efforts, field-building and other activities to strengthen climate-resilience in low-income communities.
