Climate Champions

Want to do your part for a healthy planet? Join us once a month at City Hall to share ideas, collaborate, and inspire others!

If you are committed to reducing your greenhouse gas emissions and inspiring others to do the same, then you are already a Climate Champion!

The City's new Climate Champions Program is a network of champions to share ideas, undertake partnerships, and encourage fun and innovative climate action among residents and businesses to reduce the community’s greenhouse gas emissions.
