NextGen Climate


NextGen Climate acts politically to prevent climate disaster and promote prosperity for every American.



Demonstrate the health and economic impacts of gutting the Environmental Protection Agency and show that transitioning to a clean energy economy strengthens our national security and creates more jobs than fossil fuels. Educate voters and mobilize activists to hold the Trump administration accountable and to mobilize voters in future elections.



Gutting the Environmental Protection Agency will make Americans sick, and harm our economy.



General audience, voters. Special focus on those affected by Environmental Protection Agency cuts, including those who live near important bodies of water that will be impacted by serious cuts to water protection and cleanup measures.



This project would involve creating an interactive microsite/dashboard and a corresponding suite of social share graphics. The goal is to present Environmental Protection Agency cuts in a way that mixes the hard numbers with personal stories of those to be effected.

Selected visualizations will be:

  • Featured on the social media

  • Featured on a microsite/ landing page

  • Featured in an email campaign
