Neighbours For The Planet
We are a group of concerned neighbours wanting to spark a change. The IPCC Special Report on Global Warming of 1.5 Degrees Celsius made us realize the gravity of the issue and that immediate action is required.
Our Mission is to promote and encourage sustainable practices within our local community and connect with other like-minded people. We hope to influence our elected officials to adopt policies that address the urgent issue of climate change.
Resilient Richmond Hill
Resilient Richmond Hill aims to mitigate climate change by lowering GHG emissions and adapting to climate change by planning for weather extremes.
They will build on existing actions, programs, and plan to develop a more comprehensive and strategic response to climate change.
To date, the City has been examining how local climate change impacts will affect its own programs and services, in order to identify opportunities for adaptation. Our Community Energy and Emissions Plan (2019-2021) will explore mitigation options that not only reduce our emissions but also save energy costs for residents and businesses.
