Shifting the Climate Culture in Boston

The cradle of liberty. The City of Champions. Boston leads in all walks of life—academia, sports, business, tech. Now, Boston is leading America on climate.

A national leader in local climate policy, Boston is committed to be carbon neutral by 2050. But policy change happens faster if it follows societal change. This means every Bostonian can meaningfully contribute to fighting climate change by changing how we eat, travel, and use energy. Together, we can shift the climate culture and pave the way for large-scale change.

Climate Change and Boston

Boston knows what’s at stake. As a city by the sea, Boston bears the brunt of increasingly explosive nor’easters and rising sea levels. Did you know… 

Massachusetts winters have already warmed by 7 degrees Farenheit.

From 1958 to 2010, there was a 70% increase in the intensity of extreme rain and snow in the Northeast.

Sea levels in Boston are expected to triple by 2030, adding eight inches over 2000 levels.

Rare’s Climate Culture Boston program is turning personal climate actions into collective impact. Join other Bostonians who have already signed up to receive news, event info, and other opportunities and help shift the climate culture.

Shifting the Climate Culture

Solving the climate crisis will take large-scale change. But that kind of change doesn’t happen without a movement of people taking personal action. Rare’s Climate Culture program uses insights from the science of human behavior to catalyze the adoption of key behaviors around food, energy use, transportation and giving to nature to help reduce carbon emissions.

We’re just getting started, but there are already things you can do right now:
