You can green your neighborhood, make it safer to walk in, and more. Cool Block teams will meet, discuss, and implement sustainability concepts on topics related to energy efficiency, water conservation, emergency preparedness, and more.  It’s up to you to decide with your neighbors based on your community's unique needs. This is why the Sierra Club Angeles Chapter voted to support the City of LA, and City of Irvine's Cool Blocks program. We would like to recruit you, if you live in LA or Irvine, sign up as a leader for your block.

The process, which included a study to inform the timeline to phase-out oil drilling, creates a pathway for the city and county of Los Angeles to follow.
