This is created by engaging citizens around the globe about the long-term negative impacts and positive solutions. The Climate Reality Project claims to have over five [5] million members and supporters worldwide. Founded and chaired by Al Gore, former Vice President of the United States and Nobel Laureate, this effort is guided by the scientific evidence that, "Climate change is real. There are practical methods, technologies, and processes, when combined with positive human leadership, can begin to slow, and possibly reverse, such negative impacts. This organization is helping citizens across the globe to discover the research and observations while taking meaningful steps to educate individuals and families on how to resolve pressing needs on a community-by-community basis.

    According to published information by the organization there are more than 3,000 informed and trained climate change Presenters around the globe active in The Climate Reality Project. These peer-to-peer teaching volunteers are trained by Mr. Gore, with input, research, and data shared by leading scientists, researchers, and writers, to be leaders in their home communities and countries. Such volunteers are dedicated to educating their public about the science and impacts of climate change and how these complex challenges can be solved by working at the grassroots level. Anyone interested in learning more about this organization can contact The Climate Reality Project for further information and scheduling.

    The Institute for Environmental Research and Sustainable Development (IERSD) is one of three Institutes of the National Observatory of Athens, the first Research Centre in Greece and the Balkans. Initially named as Meteorological Institute (MI), it was established in 1846 while the first meteorological observations began in 1858. IERSD holds the longest and most complete climatological records in Greece, spanning a 150-yrs period. It constituted the first official Meteorological Service of Greece, operating almost all meteorological stations of the existing network until 1931, when the National Meteorological Service was founded.

    Besides climatic records, IERSD holds a historical record of atmospheric ozone data, monitored from 1900 to1940, which is unique for Southeastern Europe. Milestone to the evolution of the Institute was the study of atmospheric pollution, well before its evident appearance in Athens, through the systematic monitoring of classical pollutants with a network of six stations. .

    Portugal National Civil Engineering Laboratory LNEC was created in 1946 from two different institutions: a Laboratory for Testing and Study of Materials, active since 1898, which had a solid experimental side, and a Centre for Studies in Civil Engineering, a scientific research unit created in 1942 under the name of Centre for Studies in Applied Mechanics, whose founder and leader was Eng.º Manuel Rocha, one of the greatest names of Portuguese engineering of the twentieth century, was also and one of LNEC’s first Directors. Since its early days, LNEC has had in its genesis this double perspective - research and experimentation - that continues today, as one of its main characteristics and asset..
    .
    .Built upon a culture of research and transfer of knowledge and technology, LNEC was, since the beginning, called out to assist on the pursuit of national objectives, such as the first public works programs, which began soon after World War II (dams, roads, fluvial and maritime hydraulics, large structures). About the same time, LNEC also began its activity around the world, supporting the development of the Portuguese Overseas provinces and carrying out studies and expert reports worldwide results by participation in dozens of international projects with other national and international institutions.

    A Rain Garden is a landscaped area that is strategically placed and connected to a downspout to collect and absorb stormwater from your rooftop. Directing the downspout to the rain garden allows stormwater to flow away from your home’s foundation and holds it in the garden area until it can naturally absorb into the ground. The rain garden dips slightly into the ground and has soil that is modified to increase infiltration. In addition to improving drainage, rain gardens also help keep polluted stormwater out of local streams while acting as atmospheric carbon sumps.

    Rain gardens are designed to be site-specific. These can be customized to meet a properties characteristics, including annual rainfall, recorded 50 - 100 year flooding incidents, ambient carbon levels, topography, soils, drainage patterns, and sun exposure.

    BayScaping is landscaping that replaces grass with plants native to the Chesapeake Bay watershed. Native plants have deeper root systems that absorb more stormwater, reduce erosion, increase infiltration, and are more drought tolerant than turf grass or ornamental species. BayScaping also provides beneficial habitat for pollinators like butterflies and honey bees.

    BayScaping is practical nearly anywhere in your yard, but is preferred on slopes or in eroded areas where dirt, bare soil, and/or invasive plants could be replaced by native plants. BayScaping is designed to individual site characteristics, factoring in These can be customized to meet a properties characteristics, including annual rainfall, recorded 50 - 100 year flooding incidents, ambient carbon levels, topography, soils, drainage patterns, and sun exposure.

    Urban Forests, i.e., urban tree canopies (UTC) provide many practical benefits, such as: improvement of air quality, moderation of temperature, filtration and reduction of storm water runoff, increased property value, reduction of crime, improved visual aesthetics, and mitigation of health problems. Inadequate tree cover disproportionately impacts communities of color and socioeconomically disadvantaged neighborhoods. Tree equity initiatives are environmental justice initiatives.

    It is widely accepted that trees are essential for well-being and for the livability of cities. As the earth's climate systems change, the frequency and duration of heat waves consistently increased during the last 100+ years and are expected to further intensify (Temple, 2020). Local g
