Creating and accelerating transformative change

Farallon Strategies

Farallon Strategies is a catalytic partner to communities and organizations that want to take bold actions to address climate change and the resulting impacts on our communities. We help build lasting relationships between our clients and project stakeholders through strategic governance strategies, technical assistance, and expert facilitation that establish a clear vision, actionable goals, and focused priorities. We acknowledge that lasting solutions are formed from the ground-up, and we help create and activate networks to drive transformative change in communities and organizations who seek to empower residents and workers with leadership and decision-making opportunities.

​Farallon Strategies launched in September of 2020 to activate emerging opportunities that support transformative change in climate and resilience governance, strategy, policies, programs, and projects in California and beyond. Incrementalism is no longer sufficient to drive the change we need to stabilize our climate and emerge a prosperous, equitable, and vibrant society for future generations. We help to spur innovation around climate change, sustainability, and resilience to transcend incrementalism.

Farallon Strategies helps fill a gap in the management consulting and policy landscape – not only providing fee for service and extension of staff relationships – but also partnership, strategy, and capacity building.

​We look forward to working with you.
