For local government leaders (NEOS network)

Want to make progress in your community to protect people from fossil fuels and take on climate change? You've come to the right place.

SAFE Cities is a movement of communities that organize to pass local policies to phase out fossil fuels and fast track clean, more efficient energy solutions for all.

We have a network of U.S. and Canadian local government leaders, including elected officials, staff, and volunteers on local government advisory boards. The network is called NEOS. To join, fill out this quick form. Once you submit the form, you’ll have an opportunity to schedule an introductory call with a member of the SAFE Cities team so we can learn more about your policy priorities and how SAFE Cities can support your work.

Local government leaders in the NEOS network share their policies, experience, knowledge, and resources. They also encourage and challenge each other while celebrating progress and innovation. SAFE Cities actively supports members of NEOS with messaging documents, policy resources, building public support, opportunities to connect with expert advisors, and more. For 2023, there are NEOS working groups on building electrification and transportation. NEOS is supported by both SAFE Cities at Stand.earth and Elected Officials to Protect America (EOPA).
