Climate Resilience


CORE works together with communities, local governments, and residents of vulnerable neighborhoods to build resilience to the increasing effects of climate change in California.

Why is climate resilience work needed in California?

Recent rapid shifts in temperature and precipitation seen worldwide are already having severe impact on the most vulnerable communities in California. As the effects of climate change continue to increase, significant steps are needed to mitigate devastating effects on those most at risk through preparedness and other proactive measures to help them adapt 

What is CORE doing to support climate resilience in California?

CORE is dedicated to supporting resilience in at-risk communities. In partnership with California Volunteers and California Climate Corps, we work with local communities to understand their specific needs and take proactive measures aimed at strengthening their resilience to disaster. 


Powered by local volunteers, we organize and support events in at-risk communities focused on wildfire mitigation, urban greening, community gardening, sustainable food practices (reducing waste), disaster preparedness, and more.

It takes a community to build resilience.

CORE’s climate resilience events in California promote environmental stewardship and climate action awareness for all. 

Whether it’s learning something new about changes to weather, spending time with other passionate people, or just giving back to your community, CORE is always looking for volunteers to get involved and help build stronger, more climate-resilient communities.
