MAY 28, 2019, GREATER SUDBURY UNANIMOUSLY DECLARED A CLIMATE EMERGENCY, MADE CLIMATE ACTION A PRIORITY AND SET A PATH FOR A PLAN TO REDUCE OUR CARBON EMISSIONS TO NET ZERO BY 2050, AND TO PROTECT OUR COMMUNITY FROM CLIMATE IMPACTS. Thank you to Council and to all who helped make this happen. As a City and as a community, we now begin the work in earnest to reduce our carbon emissions and prepare for climate impacts. Stay connected so that we can all contribute by continuing to be a voice for climate action and/or taking personal action.
