Today marks the fifth anniversary of the Paris Climate Agreement, a global agreement to limit global warming to well below 2°C (3.7°F), aggressively reducing greenhouse gas emissions. The American Society of Landscape Architects is marking this anniversary by recommitting to a national mobilization for climate action, joining over a thousand leaders from organizations, businesses, communities, and local governments across the United States as part of the "America Is All In" joint statement.

"In the face of the ongoing climate crisis, ASLA is committed to the goals and obligations put forth in the Paris Climate Agreement and to promoting the design of sustainable, resilient landscapes for all," said ASLA CEO Torey Carter-Conneen.

"ASLA was one of the first organizations in the built environment to sign onto the original We Are Still In declaration, and we are proud to stand once again to urge the incoming administration to quick, decisive action."

The original We Are Still In coalition–a collection of over 4,000 organizations, communities, businesses, local governments, and others representing a combined 159 million Americans–was formed after the Trump administration decided to pull the United States out of the Paris Climate Agreement. On November 4 of this year, the United States officially withdrew.

America Is All In is a call to action for the incoming administration to recommit the U.S. to global climate action by driving economic growth through job-creating sustainable investment, expanding U.S. leadership at home and abroad, and reimagining community partnerships to advance just and equitable climate solutions for all.
