Community 2.0 (C 2.0) is mobilizing individuals and organizations in the greater Pasadena community and larger L.A. County area to take action to help overcome climate emergency challenges. We are linking with other organizations to share and leverage resources toward UN climate goals to restore the environment, mitigate global warming, and create a culture that includes living in balance with nature and each other.
Humankind is at a turning point. The stakes could not be higher...we succeed or we become extinct. The scope and scale of mobilization of resources needed to overcome climate challenges is as great as those faced during the last world war, and technologically speaking, on par with landing a man on the moon. And yet everyone - individuals, businesses, and governments - can begin to adopt lifestyles, policies, and actions that contribute to solutions.
A silver lining is apparent in the cloud above us if we choose to look. A rare opportunity is upon us where we have to tap our full potential as individuals and together. It’s almost as if we have been given a gift, but we have to shift our perspective to see it that way. As Paul Hawken wrote in his book Drawdown: The most comprehensive plan ever proposed to reverse global warming, “If we can change the preposition, and consider that global warming if happening for us - an atmospheric transformation that inspires us to change and reimagine everything we make and do…we begin to live in a different world. We take 100% responsibility and stop blaming others. We see global warming not as an inevitability but as an invitation to build, innovate, effect change, a pathway that awakens creativity, compassion, and genius.”
We are creating a positive, proactive movement and call to action to step up to our full human potential, embark on a path toward living purposefully and passionately, and all work together as human beings - regardless of our nationality, culture, or other affiliations. This is the path of C 2.0 and we invite you to embark on this journey with us and begin making an impact NOW!

"The credit belongs to those who are actually in the arena, who strive valiantly; who know the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, and spend themselves in a worthy cause; who at best, know the triumph of high achievement; and who, at the worst, if they fail, fail while daring greatly, so that their place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat."
- Theodore Roosevelt, 26th president of the United States.
