About Us

Founded in 2009 as the community component of the Pittsburgh Climate Initiative, the Black and Gold City Goes Green helps Pittsburgh residents reduce their carbon footprint. We equip the community with free supplies, information, and other resources to help people save energy and money.


By reducing each individual's contribution to climate change through education and concrete actions, we are building a collectively stronger, more resilient, and sustainable community both now and for future generations. 

The Black and Gold City Goes Green is a program by PennFuture and is based out of their office in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. It has been managed throughout the years by the following Student Conservation Association's Green Cities Fellows:
