    Coastal Georgia

    The Coastal Georgia Chapter is a committed, passionate group of climate activists based in the Savannah, GA area. Inspired by the 100 percent renewable commitment from the city of Atlanta, the chapter worked tirelessly since their founding for the passage of the 100 percent clean energy resolution, which commits the city to achieving 100 percent clean, renewable, safe energy by 2035 in Savannah. The resolution was passed in March 2020 by the Savannah City Council. The chapter also works within a strong coalition of local partners, including The Center for a Sustainable Coast, The Harambee House/Citizens for Environmental Justice, The Dogwood Alliance, The Unitarian Universalist Church of Savannah Green Team, Citizens for Clean Air, Environment Georgia. Currently, the chapter is working on the development of a two-year strategic plan that will coordinate with the city of Savannah in a way that supports the planning phase of the 100 percent resolution and creates a citizens’ presence in the ongoing discussions within the city government.
