Our Mission

The nonprofit Mission of Climate Safe Villages (CSV) is to form climate change resilient, disaster resilient and sustainable communities worldwide, founded in our commitment to respond and adapt to the urgent challenges of the climate change crisis and its wellbeing and economic impact. CSV is about empowering individuals, families, and entire communities by equipping them with the necessary resources, essential skills, and innovative technologies that promote climate change resiliency, disaster resiliency, self-sufficiency and sustainable practices for humans, animals and plants. CSV aims to work with similar communities for localization and cooperation, with an emphasis on food, seed, and resource sharing networks.

CSV will unite these communities within a global network. Through mutual support, shared education, best practice models, and continual learning, CSV advances a sustainable and resilient future. We will foster an interconnected web of sustainable communities for a positive transition, further climate and disaster resilience, and contribute to a more viable and sustainable world for following generations.

Nowhere on Earth will be 100% safe from all climate change consequences. But we can create climate-safer locations and communities using the practices of climate change preparation, adaptation, and resilience building. ClimateSafe Villages will help you make wherever you live as climate-safe as possible using these practices.

Our Program Goals

  • Community Formation: Establishing a global network of climate change resilient and disaster-resilient communities. CSV is committed to responding to and adapting to the urgent challenges of climate change, considering its profound impact on wellbeing and economies.

  • Empowerment: We empower individuals, families, and communities by providing them with resources, skills, and innovative technologies to foster climate change resiliency, disaster preparedness, and sustainable living practices that benefit all forms of life.

  • Support: In addition to educational resources, trainings, and guides, CSV provides aid to low-income individuals and families looking to join or create climate-resilient communities
  • Collaboration and Localization: CSV champions localization and cooperation among communities, emphasizing food, seed, and resource-sharing networks to strengthen local economies and enhance self-sufficiency.

  • Global Network: Our vision is to unite these communities within a supportive global network, promoting shared education, best practice models, and continual learning to pave the way for a sustainable and resilient future.

  • Interconnectedness: We are dedicated to weaving an interconnected web of sustainable communities that support positive transitions, enhance climate and disaster resilience, and secure a viable and sustainable world for future generations.

  • Practical Resilience: Recognizing that no place on Earth is immune to climate change, CSV focuses on creating climate-safer locations through preparation, adaptation, and resilience-building practices to make every community as climate-safe as possible.

Climate Safe Villages Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Policy

Climate Safe Villages is committed to creating and fostering an environment that respects and values diversity, promotes equity, and is inclusive at all levels of our organization and work. This Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DE&I) Policy serves as a guide for our actions and decision-making.

We value the diverse life experiences and conditions of all individuals and communities we serve and collaborate with, which includes but is not limited to race, ethnicity, nationality, socio-economic status, gender, age, sexual orientation, physical abilities, religious beliefs, political beliefs, or other ideologies.

We are committed to ensuring fair treatment, access, opportunity, and advancement for all people, while striving to identify and eliminate barriers that have prevented the full participation of some groups in our activities. The principle of equity acknowledges that there are historically underserved and underrepresented populations and that fairness regarding these unbalanced conditions is needed to assist equality in the provision of effective opportunities to all groups.

We aim to create an environment in which any individual or group can be and feel welcomed, respected, supported, and valued. An inclusive climate embraces differences and offers respect in words and actions for all people.

In the course of our work, we will consider diversity, equity, and inclusion in our decision-making, planning, policies, programs, and services. This includes the recruitment and retention of a diverse board of directors, staff, volunteers, and partners. We will provide regular diversity, equity, and inclusion training and will periodically review this policy to ensure it remains effective and relevant.

All individuals associated with Climate Safe Villages are responsible for upholding this policy. We acknowledge that diversity, equity, and inclusion are tied to our mission and critical to ensure the well-being of our staff and the communities we serve.
