We lead regional campaigns to hold governments accountable and create a safer Caribbean through implementing climate adaptation measures and solutions. We support local organizers to take action in their communities through monthly training, one-on-one coaching, and direct support to plan and execute projects. We also offer press support, digital organizing, storytelling, and occasional opportunities for grants.
CCN local groups are present in various countries, organizing for climate solutions and adaptation and engaging community members in local events.
We launched in early 2020 after a training program where we noticed the important bonds we were creating and how powerful our movement will become with Caribbean unity. At that moment, we knew that we wanted to join our power and talents to support the climate movement at a regional level.
Persons in the Caribbean benefited from training, coaching and direct support to expand their leadership and organize against the climate crisis.
We held the first meetings of the Caribbean Climate Network.
Caribbean School of Climate
Over 60 new organizers from across the region came together through a series of 5 sessions, held in 3 languages. We discussed what the climate crisis looks like in our communities, included information directly from local experts, and talked about how we can fight it in a way that is relatable to our regional culture and needs.
Launch of Adapt Now to Save Lives
We launched the Adapt Now to Save Lives campaign to call on our leaders to take urgent adaptation measures to protect our lives.
Action for Adaptation
In October 2022, people across the Caribbean displayed the growing strength and diversity of the climate movement. People across the region demanded that their leaders protect their lives and communities from climate change. With 20+ Actions for Adaptation across 10 countries, we showed that we will not just wait for governments to act. We are going to lead by example and demand that all of our institutions and governments do the same.
