We seek to counteract the negative effects of climate change on Broward to make our community a resilient and sustainable place to live. The Foundation is looking for strategic approaches to counteract the effects of climate change that align with the Broward County Climate Action Plan. Think outside the box and submit your best and most creative proposal that will demonstrate measurable outcomes in one or more of the following environmental areas:
Restore our coastline and improve coastal resiliency to prevent beach erosion, which will preserve indigenous plants, animals and also help protect communities from flooding.
Increase the tree canopy to counteract rising temperatures, and keep our air clean, provide shade and habitat, increase property value and help cool urban landscapes.
Preserve natural habitats and ecosystems by removing invasive species of plants and animals that deteriorate our natural, livable environments.
Increase solar panel usage for residential and businesses.
Create more energy efficient homes and buildings.
Create clean, uncontaminated waterways that sustain estuaries and marine fisheries habitats.
Prevent saltwater intrusion and adopt strategies to ensure we have fresh, quality drinking water.
