  • How It Works

    What if these local climate initiatives coordinated their efforts to maximize impact?

     

    Through citizen engagement, Hubs build public support for political leadership on climate change.

     

    Of the 3,608 local governments in Canada:

     

    4.2% have set a GHG reduction target

    0.6% have signed the UN Compact of Mayors

    0.08% have committed to 100% renewable energy by 2050

    International accords - though essential - are insufficient to achieve reduction targets. Citizens, businesses, and civil society actors must step up to support implementation.

    Municipalities are key in the fight against climate change. They have jurisdiction over transport, waste-management, building bylaws, and land-use planning, and can act as laboratories to experiment before solutions are scaled up.

    Hubs advance their communities along the milestone process set out by the Federation of Canadian Municipalities:

    We live in the information age, but still can't answer some of the most important questions. How does your city stack up to its peers on climate: a leader or a laggard?
