Center for Earth, Energy and Democracy
The Center for Earth, Energy and Democracy (CEED) works to ensure that communities and policy makers have the tools and information they need to create energy and environmental policy that is just and sustainable. CEED's objectives include:
- Build a deeper body of climate and energy research/analysis that fundamentally addresses racial and class justice.
- Provide energy and climate policy technical assistance based on CEED research to support the environmental justice movement.
- Promote strategies for cross learning and sharing of information around environmental justice energy and and climate issues.
In the area of climate resiliency, CEED recommends approaches that address the root causes of vulnerability and include meaningful and effective participation of community members in the development and implementation of planning. Its resources focus on emergency planning, energy democracy, and energy resilience.
