Climate Control Projects was founded in 2020 with a mission of working within popular culture to create awareness, accountability and action around the issue of climate change. We produce content and events that engage mainstream audiences and connect them on a personal level to the climate crisis, leading them to immediately accessible and actionable solutions.

CCP is headquartered in a soon-to-be underwater part of NYC that was stolen from the Lenape people in 1624.
