Our Approach


Currently, the City of Cambridge is considering a Climate Safety Petition that residents have proposed with detailed, comprehensive solutions to the issues of heat, flooding, and sea level rise that we know we will eventually face. By adopting the suggestions in this petition we can ensure that the development currently taking place in Cambridge is forward-thinking and proactive when it comes to climate-change preparedness.

Our Story

The current Cambridge Climate Safety Petition provides these strategies for Cambridge to address the ongoing impacts we know climate change will have on our City. It has had input from members of neighborhood associations and local organizations, including Green Cambridge, the Mystic River Watershed Association, Mothers Out Front, and the Sierra Club. There are ongoing discussions with affordable housing advocates such as Homeowners’ Rehab (HRI) and A Better Cambridge (ABC) and others to discuss its impact and benefits.
Finally, we have an action plan that everyone in Cambridge can support.   The Cambridge Climate Safety Petition will protect residents, the environment and the financial interests of our City.
