GNDOB connects frontline community-led voices and the Seattle city government to eliminate Seattle's climate pollution by 2030, while resolving racial, social, and economic inequities. We do this by 1) recommending systemic changes and budget priorities to the Mayor, City Council, City departments and advisory boards; 2) supporting departmental planning and implementation; and 3) coordinating efforts with City departments and related advisory groups pursuant to Ordinance 125926.

About Us

The City of Seattle Green New Deal Oversight Board is composed of 19 appointed members who are passionate about advancing an equitable transition to renewable energy by centering the expertise of Black, Indigenous, People of Color, immigrants, refugees, people with low incomes, youth, elders and workers harmed first and worse by climate change. Members are appointed by the Mayor, City Council, or the Board itself as defined in Ordinance 125926.
