Climate Nexus (CN) is a nonprofit strategic communications group dedicated to changing the conversation on climate change and clean energy solutions in the United States. Climate Nexus was created to be the behind-the-scenes connector to ensure coherent, effective climate communications and to elevate the work of a broad network of partners, including youth groups, environmental justice allies, state and local leaders, and more.

Climate Nexus provides pro bono support to organizations that work on climate change and clean energy and believes the “story” of climate change is the foundation for meaningful action. Our job is to tell that story to as many people as possible.

They will develop a robust content strategy for each campaign and help us stay current on the latest social media and content generation trends to capitalize on critical climate moments.
