Building Resilience to Climate Change through Collaboration

A year ago, The San Diego Foundation released a report with a title that posed a question to regional leaders and communities – San Diego, 2050 is Calling. How Will We Answer?

The report was the result of collaboration with Climate Education Partners, and input from more than 20 local climate scientists and technical experts about the latest climate change science, and its implications for our region’s quality of life, vibrant economy, the health and wellbeing of the region’s diverse communities and spectacular natural resources.

Working Together and Investing Today

Since then, The San Diego Foundation has been working with nonprofit, government and business partners to share findings from the report and help San Diegans learn more about, prepare for and respond to the impacts of a changing climate.

We’re excited to announce that we are also partnering with the San Diego Regional Climate Collaborative to grant $311,500 to six projects to help communities put San Diego, 2050 is Calling. How Will We Answer? into action.

We know that by working together and investing today, we can ensure we leave future generations a strong regional economy and healthy environment in the face of a changing climate.
