Neighbourhood Climate Action Champions

Climate change is an issue that affects us all and to achieve our ambitious targets, we need active participation from everyone in our community.  

Programs like the neighbourhood climate action champions are a new way we can help achieve collective action, with champions working directly with their neighbours to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. 

Currently in its second year, the neighbourhood climate action champions program is already a great success!  

The 2023 Neighbourhood Climate Action Champions led 14 incredible projects designed to inspire their neighbours and reduce community greenhouse gas emissions. Projects included planting pollinator gardens and edible community gardens, hosting energy efficiency workshops or home energy retrofits, creating a kid-friendly climate action events and working with local schools to enhance understanding of environmental issues and create future sustainability champions.

By participating in this program, community members are sharing ideas and putting them in action, advancing local climate action in Kingston.
