In September 2022, Nike announced the creation of their Community Climate Resilience Program, a targeted program that helps provide access to more green spaces and parks, increasing sports participation in the communities that need it most. The program funds projects that advance a critical goal: build climate resilience in communities disproportionately impacted by climate threats. Its method: creating and cultivating healthy, active, and resilient public greenspaces.
Trust for Public Land received the program’s inaugural grant to fund U.S.-based projects advancing climate resilience and access to sport in communities disproportionally impacted by climate threats.
Nike’s support is strengthening community resilience through climate-smart park and schoolyard solutions in four low-income, underserved neighborhoods across New York City, Los Angeles, and Chicago. These high-quality green spaces also provide health, equity, and community benefits.
A new playground is coming to CNCA Castellanos very soon. Check out the video below and spot our very own students and Director of Facilities, Carla Rivera.
