Institute for Sustainable Communities


TTC is the community engagement arm of the Institute for Sustainable Communities that creates a fundamentally different way to identify and tackle critical disaster resiliency and climate change challenges that threaten coastal cities through citizen science. 

We believe in the importance of creating long-term change through co-learning with communities around strategic needs while supporting communities to actualize their own resilience. Our current community partners are located in the Manchester and Sunnyside neighborhoods of Houston and include: Texas Environmental Justice Advocacy Services (T.E.J.A.S.); Charity Productions; Jones Futures Academy; and the Furr Institute for Innovative Thinking, including the Green Ambassador Woodsy Owl Conservation Corps (Green Ambassadors), sponsored by the U.S. Forest Service Friends of the National Forests and Grasslands in Texas - Latino Legacy.
