Since its founding in 2009, the Citizens Environmental Council of Burlingame has become a regional catalyst for sustainability, educating the public on critical environmental issues, advocating for planet-friendly policies and empowering youths to become environmental leaders.

Our mission is to champion regional sustainability through education, advocacy for environmental and climate policy, and empowerment of young environmental leaders.

CEC has a strong track record of educating the public about environmental issues and advocating for sustainable policies. Volunteers started the group after the Burlingame City Council adopted its initial Climate Action Plan in 2009, which many CEC members helped shape. CEC attained nonprofit status in 2010 and, in 2016, the organization incorporated and attained 501(c)3 status.
