Climate Action and Adaptation Plan (CAAP) Outreach Pilot Project
In the fall of 2019, The City of Half Moon Bay received a $60,000 grant from the County of San Mateo Office of Sustainability to complete the CAAP outreach pilot project.
The City partnered with local community organizations to conduct climate change education and outreach to under- and unrepresented communities within Half Moon Bay. The city worked with Latinos, seniors and the youth by partnering with three community based organizations (Ayudando Latinos A Soñar (ALAS), Senior Coastsiders, and Youth Leadership Institute (YLI) ) to hold 17 events in September – December of 2019. These events included movie screenings, surveys, workshops, murals and VR simulations to and gain valuable insight on the climate change concerns of these populations. All three community-based organizations presented their findings and recommendations to City Council at their January 21, 2020 meeting. The City of Half Moon Bay plans to continue this valuable outreach and will be incorporating their findings in their upcoming Climate Action and Adaptation Report.
