NC4 is composed of municipal and civic leaders across Massachusetts Congressional District 3 working on the
frontlines of climate change resistance, resilience, and adaptation. We see first-hand climate change’s impacts to the
health and well-being of our communities and to our natural and built environment. Our hopes are to harness the
power of people and communities working together to build awareness and attract funding for regional efforts to
address already baked in climate impacts and opportunities to create a healthier and safer future. The mission of
The North Central Climate Change Collaborative (NC4) is to foster and strengthen regional municipal collaborative
efforts to combat climate change through:
 shared projects, educational efforts, and best practices, and
 informing state and federal legislative actions.
Since convening on an informal basis in the Summer of 2021, people from communities in the 3rd Congressional
District have met regularly to share knowledge on climate initiatives in their communities and ideas for how a regional
group of communities could more effectively work together.
