New Councillor Manual

Written by Sebastian Sadja

February 28, 2022

As a newly elected councillor, what can you do to advance climate justice in your community? A lot! A growing number of local elected leaders across Canada have made climate justice a priority in their communities. Hundreds of local governments have declared climate emergencies and are pushing for action which aligns with Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) science. Local governments contribute over 50% of national greenhouse gas emissions. Local government is where climate action is happening. Be a part of the action in this critical decade – learn how to bring forward effective policy initiatives that will be supported and implemented. In fact, every decision can multisolve for intersecting challenges when viewed through the lenses of ecological limits, rapid decarbonization, and equity.
