THE CLIMATE REALITY PROJECT
SAN FERNANDO VALLEY CHAPTER
MISSION – The mission of the SFV Climate Reality chapter is to take a leadership role to educate, motivate, and empower our fellow residents of the San Fernando Valley to promote a sustainable future.
The San Fernando Valley CA Chapter of Climate Reality welcomes anyone who would like to take an active role in saving our planet. Some of our members have taken the Climate Reality training with Former Vice President Al Gore, but that is not a requirement to join the group. We welcome anyone who wants to roll up their sleeves and get personally involved in making a difference in changing our climate reality.
A Land Acknowledgement is a formal statement that recognizes and respects Indigenous Peoples as stewards of this land and the enduring relationship that exists between Indigenous Peoples and their traditional territories. It acknowledges the history that has brought us to reside on this land, the colonialism that is present in our current systems and calls on us to be mindful of of our own present participation in it.
We acknowledge that we are on the traditional territory of the Tongva, Kizh, Tataviam, and Chumash tribes.
The Climate Reality Project Mission:
to catalyze a global solution to the climate crisis by making
urgent action a necessity across every sector of society.

Coral Reefs and Our Changing Climate
Summer is almost here, which means trips to the beach and fun in the ocean—kayaking, snorkeling, and maybe diving? So grab your gear and join us as we dive into a special presentation on how coral reefs are facing a changing climate.
Our guest speaker will be Dr. Stuart Sandin, Professor at Scripps Institution of Oceanography (and native of the San Fernando Valley). Dr. Sandin leads a group of ecologists, biologists, and computer engineers on the 100 Island Challenge Project, a global campaign to study the variability of reefs. He will speak on the capacity of corals to adapt to changing conditions.
So bring all your questions about the future of our oceans; you won’t want to miss this presentation!
