Do you know of an individual, group, or organization who advocates for climate action or is involved in making San José more environmentally friendly? If so, we encourage you to nominate them for the 2024 Climate Smart Champion Awards.


The 5th annual Climate Smart Champion Awards will recognize outstanding efforts by individuals, groups and organizations in 2023 that aligned with the goals of Climate Smart San José and contributed to a more sustainable city. Anyone can nominate an individual, group, or organization using this form.
