Empowering Climate Change in the United States

Based on the previously published Ace National Strategic Planning Framework for the United States (2020), Empowering Climate Action offers a focused strategy to the Biden administration for sustained success on elevating community and state level climate work and allows the US to rejoin the Paris Agreement demonstrating their commitment to international leadership. ACE leadership focuses on an informed and engaged public which is the most effective and equitable way to accelerate a just transition to a resilient, low-carbon future.

“We urgently need public engagement on the climate issue, and this book couldn’t be more timely.” Jeff Nesbit, Executive Director, Climate Nexus

“The ACE Strategic Planning Framework is a readable, inspiring trail map for that journey. Read it, sign on to it, act on it!” Howard Frumkin, Former Director, National Center for Environmental Health, U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention

“This framework is built on the best of cross-sector thinking and engagement and reinforced by climate and social sciences. It recommends the first and best path forward as a nation: by and for The People.” Sarah Sutton, Cultural Sector Lead, We Are Still In
