What motivates you to act on climate change?
Because of its scale and implications, climate change is one of the most intimidating challenges of our time. Today, we are seeing its effects ripple down to all of us - from businesses and organizations, to local communities and individuals. Here in Ontario, the average carbon footprint per person is 2.5 times larger than the global average.
We depend on the planet to thrive, and there are many ways in which all of us can take action.
We can make a substantial difference as individuals.
However, many Canadians concerned about climate change may feel lost, overwhelmed and unsure of how to act. We understand that these feelings can be overwhelming and make it hard to take action. We're here to help.
