Climate Change is here, it’s real, and is having an impact on the Hamilton – Burlington “Bay” Area.
As announced in December 2017, Hamilton is partnering with the City of Burlington and Mohawk College to move forward on regional climate change initiatives, including the outcomes of the Community Climate Change Action Plan. Funding for the partnership was provided by the Province of Ontario.
We want your say! As local citizens and organizations with opportunities we want you to share your ideas and concerns about climate change and what actions the Bay Area Partnership should undertake.
Supported by the Centre for Climate Change Management at Mohawk, the Bay Area Partnership will be modelled after the successful Bay Area Harbour Remediation Council with the formation of a Bay Area Climate Change Council (BACCO) and Bay Area Climate Change Implementation team (BACCIT). To co-ordinate these efforts, A Bay Area Climate Change Office housed at Mohawk College is being formed.
Please take the time to fill out a survey seeking your feedback on this initiative and actions moving forward at https://bayareaclimatechange.metroquest.ca/
If you want to keep informed on the activities of the Bay Area Partnership, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to add your name to our mailing list.
We’ll keep you informed of upcoming opportunities to participate in the Bay Area Climate Change Action Plan process and other developments.
