Climate change is a global challenge that calls for local action. The Path to Positive: Los Angeles campaign engages leaders from local government, faith, higher education, business, and health sectors on climate solutions.

Local action on climate change will make our lives better today and in the future.

Climate change is contributing to the California drought, degrading the air quality in Los Angeles, and threatening our public health — but we can do something about it, and help lead the nation to a clean energy future.

The Path to Positive: Los Angeles campaign, jointly organized by the nonprofits Climate Resolve and ecoAmerica, is empowering local leaders to enable them to reduce their emissions and engage Angelenos in climate solutions that will make a difference now and in the future.

We know Los Angeles can lead the nation in accelerating and amplifying effective solutions for climate change, and we are working collectively to broaden the call for climate solutions — with an emphasis on local action. Path to Positive: Los Angeles building awareness and support for climate solutions by inspiring and empowering organizations and the community towards collaboration for meaningful progress, including legislation and plans that guarantee real and measured impacts.

Leadership Circle

I want to help elevate Southern California’s climate change leadership locally and worldwide. By joining the Leadership Circle I acknowledge I will: • Personally reduce my contribution of greenhouse gas emissions (see for ideas). • Participate in sector-specific meetings with updates on the campaign and exclusive presentations by local leaders. • Build awareness and support for climate solutions among Angelenos through my communications and by lending my name and image to the campaign for use on the website.
