See the Climate Action Clothesline
Hundreds of Kingston student artists produced the dramatic Climate Action Clothesline that portrays more than 500 ways to combat and mitigate the effects of climate change (see www.CityofKingston.ca/climateaction for climate action ideas).
This project supports both the Environmental Responsibility and the Cultural Vitality pillars of the Sustainable Kingston Plan. The other two pillars are the Social Equity and Economic Health pillars. See www.sustainablekingston.ca to learn more about this plan aimed at making Kingston Canada's most sustainable city.
