US Climate Action Network
The US Climate Action Network (USCAN) was founded in 1989 to coordinate US non-governmental organization (NGO) voices in the international climate talks. In the 90’s, USCAN expanded its work to coordinate with state groups to help with national and international engagement. USCAN is currently an increasingly diverse, vital, and growing network of 160+ member organizations dedicated to advancing climate action. The ability to create the space where a broad and deep network of civil society organizations can establish the relationships and processes needed to achieve transformational change in climate policy is the fundamental strength of USCAN. For the past 27 years, USCAN’s purpose and the biggest successes have been that of maximized stakeholder involvement and moving groups from shared vision to collective action. USCAN ensures that the the climate community is stronger together than any US organization could be alone.
USCAN’s vision is a powerful, inclusive, diverse, interconnected, nimble US climate movement that operates effectively from local to global scales towards promoting: a renewable energy future; an end to fossil fuels and net greenhouse gas emissions; prepared and resilient communities; equitable and just transitions.
