The scientists, facilitators, and process innovators at the GEOS Institute believe climate change is solvable. To that end, the GEOS team helps local governments prepare and enact science-based solutions that promote resiliency in these changing times. For over a decade, the social enterprise has fostered a culture of awareness, equity, and collective action. Its services are priced to ensure all communities have access to GEOS's valuable services. COVID-19 Impact: The largest financial impact of the COVID-19 crisis at GEOS has been in the loss of projects in the ClimateWise program, which helps local governments adapt to changing climate conditions and address greenhouse gas emissions. Because local governments are on the front lines of emergency response in the pandemic, these community projects have been put on-hold, resulting in a dramatic loss of income.
