Climate change is the challenge of our era.
Dealing with it dynamically can be the economic engine of a lifetime.

Sustainable Hudson Valley's mission is to speed up the shift to a low-carbon economy with high quality of life for all, by bringing people together with knowledge, tools, community and a sense of the possible.

Research shows that people are best able to deal with the climate crisis, and take action, when they are invited into a conversation about the local implications of a changing climate, from extreme weather to food security; when the call to action is based on values (not narrow self-interest or the illusion of convenience); and when they are part of a group conversation which helps bring home the reality to participants and allows them to make and witness commitments to action. Across the spectrum of issues and opportunities, we engage communities in “wake-up conversations” to establish a climate action pathway that plays to each community’s strengths and promotes visible transformation.
