MarinCAN is a community-driven campaign to dramatically reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, prepare for climate change impacts, and meaningfully address and integrate equity. MarinCAN works with Marin County residents, businesses, organizations, agencies, and local governments to design and implement local climate change solutions in 6 Focus Areas:
Our Vision: Marin reverses its impacts on climate change by implementing local solutions as we create a thriving, equitable, and resilient future for all.
Our Mission: Leverage, amplify, and support bold climate solutions in collaboration with the community by building a “hub” for increased coordination among local governments, agencies, organizations, and the public.
- Prosperity, Health, and Resilience for All
- Collaborative and Inclusive
- Foster Innovation and Capacity Building
- Create Systemic Change
- Commitment to Equity and Diversity
- Support and Empower Existing Organizations and Efforts to Address Climate Change

Equity: Climate change and equity are interconnected. Low-income communities, communities of color, indigenous peoples and tribal nations, and immigrant communities suffer first and worst from climate disasters, yet produce the least GHG emissions. MarinCAN acknowledges these communities have existed and still exist in Marin County and seeks to design and implement solutions with them. This requires internal and external on-going work to normalize, organize, and internalize equity principles and approaches including making the MarinCAN solutions equitable and accessible.
