What is a CREW?
CREWs are groups of residents who are interested in building community climate resilience through education and outreach, participatory planning, and small-scale service projects.
We will work with each pilot CREW over the coming months to develop and enact a strategy to build neighborhood engagement in climate resilience. Each CREW’s plan will be shaped by the particular challenges, risks, and strengths of the local community, as well as member interest. However, activities may include depaving and expanding green spaces, conducting emergency response trainings, and creating a participatory community resilience plan that promotes the safety and livelihoods of all residents.
In spring 2018, we will host a workshop for pilot CREWs led by resilience, organizing, and emergency response professionals on climate causes and impacts, resilience strategies, and community organizing. This will also be a chance to meet and learn from fellow CREWs.
