Our Year

June 2021 - May 2022

Creating positive change together

Speaking up

We spoke up for urgent climate action, climate justice, and and caring for those most in need in our community.

We spoke up for protecting the LU greenspace, and Wolf Lake old growth forest.

Creating positive change

Place Hurtubise Regreened:  We partnered with the Place Hurtubise Tenants Association, Ward 8 CAN, Sudbury Shared Harvest, Junction Creek Stewardship Committee, Greater Sudbury Housing, and others on a regreening project at the Place Hurtubise housing and playground.  Twenty-three native trees, five fruit trees, an edible forest and pollinator gardens, and some sitting stones have brought more nature to Place Hurtubise Playground and housing. 

Place Hurtubise Courtyard Mural.  In partnership with Myths and Mirrors, Live Love Louder (who led the design and painting), Place Hurtubise Tenant Association, and Ward 8 CAN, we created an interactive ground mural in the Place Hurtise courtyard, with a design inspired by and co-created by Place Hurtubise families.

Your voice matters

We are reaching out to hear from community members about their needs and priorities leading up to the 2022 municipal election.

Connecting through conversations

We explored climate justice and shared examples of community- led climate justice action with Conversations for Change, and our Climate Justice Book Club. Many of these conversations led to real-life outcomes – like a neighbourhood swap day, and plans for a tool library at our public library.

Coming up: Sept 2022 – May 2023

Fall 2022, we will be setting our advocacy priorities for the next term of Council, and engaging community members and candidates in the municipal election, in collaboration with others.

We will continue our Conversations for Change and Climate Justice Book Club, in partnership with the library.

We will collaborate on more community projects, connecting community members, creating positive change in our community and supporting neighbourhood-level climate action. 

In spring 2023, we will begin to prepare for the next round of Project Impact, supporting more small but impactful community projects.
