About this Event

Ever wondered what you can do to fight the climate crisis where you live? Often find yourself thinking about how to be part of the solution, given the global Climate Strikes and Climate Emergency? Want to learn what climate change means for your neighbourhood? Then come join us for a hands-on program of 4 workshops, where you’ll develop your skills in championing climate actions with your friends, family, colleagues & neighbours!

Choose either the 3-workshop series or the all-in-one day:

3-workshop series:

  • Feb 29, 10am - 12.30pm What climate change means to your neighbourhood: This workshop will review the science on climate change and regional climate projections for Metro Vancouver. You will then apply this to your neighbourhood and explore its greatest needs using the Citizen's Coolkit.
  • Mar 7, 10am - 12.30pm Visioning your neighbourhood: Based on the needs identified in Workshop 1, you will explore and prioritize practical local solutions via fun Coolkit mapping and visioning exercises.
  • Mar 14, 10am - 12.30pm Crafting an action plan & empowering others: Guided by your friendly workshop instructors, you will craft, critique, and refine your action plans for neighbourhood climate action. Finally, gain practical skills to become a climate champion and inspire your neighbours!

All-in-one day:

  • Apr 18: Condensed version of the 3 workshops above, for those with tighter schedules

All workshops are FREE with REFRESHMENTS PROVIDED!

All recipients will receive a copy of the Citizen's Coolkit – a fun DIY guide to local action on climate change and urban forestry
