CEC is committed to creating a more resilient and just region in the face of climate change. Through our work with the Central Coast Climate Justice Network and elsewhere, our vision includes an end to racial injustices and their resulting environmental inequities.


Building community resilience is at the center of everything CEC does. CEC’s Climate Resilience Roundtables are generating big, bold ideas to secure the local food system, engage frontline communities in decision-making, and ensure that we have the tools we need in the face of increased heat, deeper droughts, more intense storms, and longer fire seasons.

During this pandemic CEC has continued to convene the community through regular virtual events focused on the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, climate action during a pandemic, access to electric vehicles, and resilient food systems.

Your support will help CEC bring together diverse stakeholders from across the region, acknowledge our interconnectedness, and take necessary, if sometimes painful, steps to protect our community from climate chaos.

All donations to CEC made by July 31, 2020 will be DOUBLED by CEC’s Leadership Match Fund.

For nearly 50 years, CEC has incubated and innovated real life solutions that directly impact climate change. Our programs lead to clean vehicles, locally controlled clean energy, resilient food systems and reduction of single-use plastic.
