Stratford Ontario area residents! You are invited to a virtual community meeting to mark the 1-year anniversary of Stratford’s Climate Emergency Declaration and begin a community dialogue to kick start local climate action for 2021.
This first event will focus on creating momentum and sharing ideas for ambitious climate action in Stratford. How can city leaders, community leaders, and all residents take the climate emergency seriously?

Our neighbours in Oxford County have an ambitious “Future Oxford” vision and have put sustainability plans into action to balance social, environmental, and economic interests, including accessible services, greater food security, low-carbon transportation, increased energy efficiency, and protection of source water, as well as zero waste and zero poverty goals.
We will also announce upcoming virtual events focused on practical local actions to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from sources like transportation, waste, and buildings including our homes.
