The Cities & Climate Action Forum received a $125,000 start-up grant from the Climate Action Fund of Environment and Climate Change Canada in 2019. It is an interactive platform that seeks to empower youth, other community builders, and municipal governments to work for institutional climate mitigation action at the local level. Upwards of 60% of Greenhouse Gas (GhG) emissions are committed and/or regulated by municipalities. Cities must therefore be part of the solution to the climate crisis.
The Forum is hosted by Windsor Law with law students leading much of its work. Our mission is three-fold:
To invite us to lead a workshop for your organisation, to discuss opportunities for collaboration, or to request direct research assistance for your municipality or other local public institution on climate change mitigation-related policy development, please contact one of our project leads at the below coordinates. And please follow us on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram at @CityClimateAct.
