WHAT IS COMMON GROUND ON CLIMATE?
Common sense solutions on climate will get people back to work and set the United States on a path to better health and stronger economic growth.
Over two-thirds of Americans think the government needs to act on climate and the economy1. But partisan differences have been a major barrier to passing federal policy. To address the triple crisis of poverty, pollution, and the global COVID-19 pandemic, we need both sides of the aisle working towards solutions. Building an inclusive clean economy that works for all will take uniting the underdogs from the left and right.
At Dream Corps Green For All, we’re willing to work with everyone who is ready to roll up their sleeves and find solutions. We have to start now and we can’t afford to wait.
Common Ground on Climate Bipartisan Summit at the 2021 Global Energy Forum
On January 22, 2021, we co-hosted a bipartisan discussion on common-sense solutions that address the triple crises of COVID-19, job loss, and climate change in the new Congress. We brought together unlikely allies to find common ground on climate alongside conservative-leaning groups like American Conservation Coalition (ACC), Citizens for Responsible Energy Solutions (CRES) Forum, in addition to the nonpartisan Atlantic Council.
Leaders from both sides of the aisle took a fresh look at policy options we can act on quickly to put Americans back to work, strengthen the economy, and address climate change all at the same time.
