GCSE invites you to join the new GCSE Applied Solutions Science Action Collaboration Platform on Mobilize.
You can use this platform to network, create posts, and find other members to grow a network of university and local government partners putting science into practice. As a part of this group you can share your ideas, inspiration, tips and tap into our community’s resources.
GCSE is building programs that harness this untapped potential of universities to contribute to local community resilience. In 2019, GCSE officially absorbed Applied Solutions, a standing network of over 150 local governments across the United States.
Launched in 2008, Applied Solutions was a nonprofit organization that brought together local governments throughout the United States to help communities build a clean economy through implementing sustainable water and energy technology. Applied Solutions provided information to its affiliates through newsletters, webinars, a clean economy knowledge center, and technical guidebooks.
With Applied Solutions affiliates now a part of the GCSE network, GCSE is working to create a program to grow systemic capacity that links scientists and decision-makers. These connections will provide capacity to local governments and ultimately help transform the institutional relationships between universities and local communities to benefit sustained climate resilience.
