While the cities of Nelson, Yellowknife, and Halifax and the Region of Waterloo have pursued their own unique plans to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, they share the common vision of reaching a low-carbon future. All are Milestone 5 achievers in the PCP program, and all have valuable knowledge to support other communities in taking local climate action.
Be part of this webinar and take advantage of the chance to ask municipal climate leaders about ways to boost energy initiatives in your community. Come with questions, ideas or challenges that you'd like to discuss. Our panelists will share their stories and insights on the many subjects shown in the speakers list below.
