Global Climate Network
The Global Climate Network is an alliance of independent, progressive and influential think tanks located in countries where taking action on climate change really matters. We bring together some of the world's brightest brains to figure out and propose progressive solutions to climate change that will also help lay the foundations for a new era of prosperity.
Our focus is on policy. We will work with decision makers on innovations that help clear space for progressive action on climate change. Each of us enjoys international renown, but understands that domestic transformation is the key to successful global action.
