What is a CREW Team?
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 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 the 2018, we hosted a initial workshop for pilot CREWs led by resilience, organizing, and emergency response professionals on climate causes and impacts, resilience strategies, and community organizing.
