CRCS is now Possible Planet.
The Center for Regenerative Community Solutions (CRCS) is a 501(c)(3) NJ nonprofit devoted to:
- Providing local communities with educational services on the effects of climate change and other related issues that can affect their long term ability to regenerate their ecological and economic systems,
- Providing local government institutions with assistance to undertake actions and initiatives to reduce and ameliorate present and expected extreme weather and other climate change effects,
- Providing small businesses and non-profit organizations with funding to undertake actions and initiatives to reduce and ameliorate present and expected climate change effects in low and moderate-income communities, including communities impacted by Hurricane Sandy.
While we are a newly registered entity, the CRCS grows out of work that we’ve done for a number of years through the Institute for Sustainable Enterprise at Fairleigh Dickinson University, the Center for Leadership in Sustainability (CLS), and through several other nonprofits. And as noted elsewhere, CRCS now includes the CLS and its associated activities, the Sustainable Leadership Network, the Sustainable Leadership Forum, the Sustainable Haiti Coalition (on hold), Transition NJ, and the Sustainable Business Network.
Our team has substantial experience and expertise in community engagement, urban planning, anthropology, organization development, project management, leadership development, finance, and permaculture, as well as the broad topics of sea level rise, coastal ecosystem integrity, and climate change.
