Greenovate Boston

Greenovate Boston provides resources for all residents to participate in the City of Boston’s climate action goals.

The Greenovate Boston program was unveiled in 2009 and is vital to Mayor Walsh’s Climate Action Plan. Greenovate keeps the people of Boston up-to-date with climate news, provides real-world tools and strategies for sustainable living, and connects Bostonians with action opportunities in their neighborhoods.

The Greenovate community has evolved into a diverse and inclusive network that makes it possible for every Bostonian to contribute to the City’s greenhouse gas reduction goals. The Mayor’s Greenovate Boston Awards recognize community sustainability leaders in Boston. They are held every year around Earth Day.
