The Great Lakes hold 20 per cent of the world's available surface freshwater and provide drinking water to 45 million Canadians and Americans. They are a place for connection and recreation, and are the centre of the world's third largest regional economy.
But the lakes are under threat. Overdevelopment, poor shoreline management, and pollution from agricultural and urban areas compromise the health of our lakes. Four out of five Great Lakes are in a state of decline, and climate change will only intensify the problems we?re seeing now.
This webinar marks the public launch of the Community Climate Hub initiative. Coordinating diverse local climate actions across the country has the potential to generate a groundswell of support for ambitious climate policy not only at the municipal level, but provincially and federally as well. Discover tools and best practices that equip citizens to support and undertake ambitious local climate action.
