Climate Change Conversation Launch
We had about 100 people join us to help kick off the Hamilton Climate Change Conversation on July 22, 2014. Participants discussed climate change in Hamilton and actions we can take to reduce our contributions to climate change and prepare for the risks associated with changes in weather.
Join the Conversation!
We want to hear from you! A key component of the Community Action Plan is strong engagement of all stakeholders, groups, and citizens within the City. We want to understand what climate change means to you, how changing weather has impacted you, and how we can prepare for further change. Share your climate change stories here.
