Redwood Region Climate & Community Resilience Hub


(2021) The Redwood Core Hub provides community engagement, technical assistance and an equity and justice lens to help our community transition our built and natural systems to a decarbonized and resilient future. By transitioning our built systems to lowest-emission operations, and optimizing natural systems’ regenerative and carbon ‘sink’ (sequestration) potentials, rural areas can adapt and manage against impacts, improve local economies and quality of life, zero out their own carbon footprint, and help the planet cool. The CORE Hub helps convene dialogues and distribute resources to communities as they work to reorganize and relocate built and natural systems in better cooperation with human needs, and to document the processes so local communities and other rural regions and Tribal Nations have a recipe for their own decarbonized resilience. Donations to the CORE Hub fund support this work.
