The climate crisis affects all of us, in almost every aspect of our lives. And the solutions to global warming touch every part of the country and the economy. The Vision for Equitable Climate Action (VECA) is a roadmap for how we can prevent the worst of global warming, in ways that will make communities safer, families more secure, our economy more stable, our environment healthier and more sustainable, and our country more just and equitable.
From clean energy to agriculture, from transportation to healthcare, VECA shows that taking on the climate crisis with the urgency and ambition that is needed can be done in ways that benefit us all. This agenda was created over the course of a year, by a diverse team of 176 people from 106 organizations, from coast to coast and everywhere in between. Through that, VECA shows that people throughout the country can come together, share their knowledge and experience, and create a broad and comprehensive plan of action.
The U.S. Climate Action Network is a vital network for 175+ organizations active on climate change. Our mission is to build trust and alignments among members to fight climate change in a just and equitable way. We envision a powerful, inclusive, and trusting network of US organizations who worked together to meet the global goals in the Paris Climate Agreement and exceed the US targets outlined in that agreement. usclimatenetwork.org
