About Us

Climate Communities is located in the iconic DC headquarters of the National Association of Realtors, the first LEED-certified building in Washington. We are on Capitol Hill and steps away from Union Station. Come visit us when you are in town.

Schools have a great advantage and opportunity to be community centers and partners. If the schoolyards are well-designed they can provide much-needed green space in heavily urbanized neighborhoods; increase academic performance; bring public art into communities; serve as gathering places for other community programs, including fresh vegetable delivery and other healthy food programs; and, significantly contribute to a reduction in stormwater runoff and urban heat islands across cities and towns.   Join us this Thursday, March 5, at 2 PM EST to hear from Meg Kelly from Chicago's Healthy Schools Campaign, who will discuss the "Space to Grow" project that is transforming Chicago's schoolyards into vibrant public spaces through an innovative multi-sector, public-private partnership.
