The Massachusetts Climate Action Network (MCAN), a 501(c)3 non-profit, fights the climate crisis one town at a time, with the help of local MCAN chapters – and you!
Our Mission: The Massachusetts Climate Action Network seeks to accelerate the equitable decarbonization of buildings and the electricity supply in Massachusetts by empowering local residents, advocates, and community members to take action.
MCAN’s role as a facilitator of municipal-level action is unique among Massachusetts environmental groups. We empower our local chapters by enhancing communication, promoting town-level projects that improve communities, decreasing climate change-causing pollution, and reducing development time for those projects. MCAN speaks on behalf of all chapters to improve Massachusetts energy and climate policies and programs.
How We Work:
- Support local MCAN chapters to implement change at the municipal level. Municipalities have been the most active level of government to fight climate change on a worldwide basis.
- Advocate at the state and regional level for policies and programs that will benefit municipalities and their citizens.
- Facilitate peer learning and tool-sharing to effectively replicate successful programs from one municipality to the next.
- Work with partner organizations, including neighborhood and faith associations and affinity groups, to help them take action on climate change.
