The Michigan Climate Action Network is a network of groups and individuals working to build and mobilize a powerful grassroots movement in the Great Lakes state to call for clean energy solutions that will put us on a path to climate stability and climate justice. We support citizen actions that bring urgency and advance progress to slow climate change.
• A country and state where individuals, communities, businesses and elected leaders are working towards solutions to climate change.
• Prioritizing clean energy sources like solar and wind power, and phasing out dirty fossil fuels.
• Placing Michigan on a path to reaching 100 percent clean energy by 2050 to create a stable, sustainable climate.
Our network fosters and facilitates collaborative efforts to share information, coordinate activities, and develop strategies across diverse organizations and constituencies to address climate change.
