Climate change affects everyone, but low and moderate-income neighborhoods are often disproportionately affected by these issues. The LFZI was designed to empower the community to fight climate change by teaching youth environmental responsibility.

The LFZI also serves as a model for the rest of the community and, as evidenced by its prominent role in Mayor Daley's new Climate Action Plan, the rest of Chicago as well.
