Our Mission

The mission of the Baltimore Social-Environmental Collaborative (BSEC) is to contribute to climate action plans for Baltimore that also improve the well-being of those who live in historically underserved neighborhoods. This means co-designing with communities climate solutions that respond to community concerns. BSEC scientists work in close partnership with Baltimore residents to guide the scientific questions being asked. As data is gathered and findings are made, the work continuously evolves in response to community needs and input.
