Hidden Heroes Nomination Form 2022
On this form, we invite you to nominate a local government staff person (non-elected) from your city, county, or another public agency that has been instrumental in building climate resilience in your community. We are looking for the people working behind the scenes and on the ground to make programs, projects, and policies for a better Bay Area become a reality. The deadline for nominations is Sunday, May 15, 2022.

The winners selected for each category will be invited to participate in a special short film that will premiere at our Hidden Heroes event in September 2022. Nominees should be local government staff working at the intersection of land use and climate change within the following categories:

• Nature-based Climate Adaptation: working on policies and projects that lead with nature to build climate resilience. Examples include people working on the conservation and stewardship of open space (reducing wildfire risk and drought impacts), restoring wetlands to reduce flood risk, crafting policies that protect creeks and riparian corridors, etc.

• Planning for Resilience: planning and community engagement that implements equitable, climate resilience strategies. Examples include people working with frontline communities most impacted by climate hazards to ensure their voices are heard in the planning process; creating innovative plans that incorporate climate resilience such as general plans, climate actions plans, hazard mitigation plans, and more.

• Abundant Climate-smart Housing: building more homes in the Bay Area, close to jobs and transit and away from fire hazards, that are affordable for all, is the single most impactful action we can take to reduce our climate impacts at the local level. Examples include people working on policies to reduce barriers to more housing and working on great climate-smart development projects.

Once the selection process is finalized, we will reach out to the awardees directly and inform you via email if your nominee was selected. If winners accept the award, they must be available for at least two days of filming (one full day in their own location and a half-day at a TBD location in the Bay Area).
