Creating positive change together
Bringing community priorities to City Hall
We reached out to the community to hear your priorities and needs, and brought your voice to candidates, and the new Mayor and Council. We collaborated with other community organizations on a Mayoral Town Hall and candidate pledges on environmental, social, and community issues.
Advocating for Climate Action
We successfully advocated for a full time senior staff position to coordinate the City’s climate action.
Climate Justice Corner
We launched a Climate Justice Corner at the main library (in partnership with Greater Sudbury Public Library) where community members can find books, information, and resources to take action, get involved, or broaden their understanding of climate action and climate justice.
We hosted a beautiful celebration of Earth Day and the launch of the Climate Justice Corner.
Protecting the LU greenspace
We successfully campaigned for Laurentian University to keep the LU greenspace and trails for the community.
Creating positive change - Pollinate Sudbury
We provided native pollinator plants for Birkdale community housing, Westmount, Walden, Wahnapitae First Nation, and Atikameksheng Anishnawbek First Nation Community Gardens. We joined community members in planting new pollinator gardens, as well as fun activities like nature crafts, rock painting, and making seed-tape.
Coming up: Sept 2023 – May 2024
Next year, we will be hosting Project Impact 2024, supporting small but mighty grassroots community projects
We will be animating the Climate Justice Corner with activities, drop-ins and more.
We will host a year-end event imagining the future we want together.
We will continue to speak up for urgent climate action, support for community-led initiatives, safe sidewalks and bike routes, and taking care of each other, land, and water.
