Our Approach

We are working with a network of experts across the state to advance three strategic priorities:


Synthesizing what is known and analyzing what is not in order to improve understanding of climate impacts and solutions in Georgia.

Stronger conversations

Fostering a constructive, nonpartisan discussion about how climate change affects Georgia and what can be done about it.


Working with partners to enable Georgians to take practical steps to respond to climate change and its impacts.
