TAKE ACTION ON CLIMATE CHANGE. Make the pledge to act on climate change. We will support you.
FRIDAYS FOR FUTURE – in Sudbury and all around the world, kids are asking adults to act on climate change to protect their future. Youth - you can add your voices. Adults - you can answer that call.
Join local Fridays for Future youth for their weekly Friday climate strikes. Strikes have moved on-line for now. Check the Facebook event.
Fridays for Future Sudbury on-line climate strike, Friday, April 3. It’s easy to take part! Make a sign with your climate action message. Take a picture of yourself with your sign. Post it with #ClimateStrikeOnline #GreaterSudbury in the FB event, or on Twitter or Instagram.
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.
On November 12, 2019, Council approved taking the next steps on Greater Sudbury's draft Community Energy and Emissions Plan.
You can still sign the climate action petition at reThink Green (176 Larch, 3rd floor, stair access). You can also print a petition to collect signatures, and return them to reThink Green. Download the petition to print in English or French.
Support net zero. Print net zero postcards or flyers (colour, B&W) to share with your neighbours, family or colleagues. Share this link with friends, and download this image to post on social media. Get tips and inspiration here.
GET INFORMED AND INSPIRED TO ACT: see the Sudbury presentation slides from Environment Commissioner Dianne Saxes’s talk; listen to 15-year-old Greta Thunberg’s address to the UN climate negotiations, COP-24 in Poland in December. Read our Climate Cafe discussion booklet here.
ATTEND OR HOST A CLIMATE CAFE: Connect with people in your area and learn and do some simple but meaningful local actions which can help reduce your carbon footprint and help build political will for action on climate change. All ages welcome.
Watch for more Climate Cafes to come.
