We need you and we thank you!
In this season of harvest, gratitude and giving, we are writing to remind you of the work we do at Sustainable Hudson Valley and the “why” behind it.
As growth partners, we pull together and align many organizations that have their hands in the dirt and are doing the hard work of shaping a sustainable and regenerative future for us all.
Our work is rooted in accelerating common action by building a common rallying vision and shared strategies. We have been leading in this dimension through our Regional Climate Action Roadmap and Toolkit, a comprehensive and collaborative effort of 90 stakeholders organized around the regional pathway to achieving the goals of the Climate Act.
The Roadmap is distinct in its focus on projects and programs that can be implemented by regional networks, communities, institutions, and enterprises, allowing us to create an effective bridge between state policy and local choices.
As a result of this work, we are leaning into three game-changing projects:
- Bringing together communities that want to build sizeable solar projects, with utility grid planners in order to advise on priorities for upgrading the electric grid.
- Working with the recycling coordinators of Mid-Hudson counties on strategies for moving the needle on waste diversion, starting with textiles which too often end up in piles in the Global South and can feed new materials industries.
- Working with a cluster of public libraries on climate resilience planning to help these critical institutions advance climate-safe neighborhoods.
As New York’s climate policy attracts both big investment and tough push back, three things could very realistically happen:
- State policy could happen to us without much local imagination.
- State policy could be rolled back by the wave of misinformation that is coursing through our airwaves and communities.
- We could come together and implement climate solutions in our own creative ways.
Ensuring #3 is Sustainable Hudson Valley’s passionate commitment.
We invite you to visit the Roadmap website to learn more about the heavy undertaking required and how we’re helping to put it all together.
