Who is Leading

Path to Positive Communities is led by a diverse and growing network of community leaders and elected officials at the city, county and regional levels. Additional leaders are from organizations that serve local officials through training, capacity building, program support and peer-to-peer learning opportunities. All members of this Leadership Circle make advancing climate solutions within their institutions and communities an important part of their leadership.
