Coalition’s third anniversary

3-chandellesOn Friday February 9th from 3-6pm, the Coalition will celebrate its 3rd anniversary at Wesmount Park United Church, 4695 Maisonneuve West, Westmount (Vendome metro).

On that occasion, we will showcase the work being done by local activists and entrepreneurs in transportation, circular economics, eco-neighbourhoods, urban agriculture, responsible consumption, and climate finance. Break-out sessions will allow you to offer your input and get involved more deeply if you so choose. Workshops and conferences will be followed by a 6-8.

For the first time in a generation, we have a municipal administration that is -on paper and in some of its initial decisions- willing to deliver on ambitious climate action. Let’s make our voices heard and turn that intention into action.

Campaign promises like the pink line, new buses, and the Réseau Express Vélo, in addition to the recent announcement that our emissions reduction target has been changed from 30% to 35% below 1990 levels by 2020, are promising. They demonstrate this administration’s willingness to tackle our biggest and ever-growing source of emissions seriously by providing viable solutions to congested roads and transit lines.

Good intentions are only the first step towards making progress. Support from a diversity of organizations and communities is essential for plans to be implemented. The Montreal Climate Coalition’s mission remains to rally those diverse voices in support of the transition towards carbon neutrality (zero net emissions) by Montreal’s 400th anniversary in 2042. To that end, over 50 non-profits and enterprises have signed the Declaration #MTL400.

On Friday February 9th from 3-6pm, the Coalition will celebrate its 3rd anniversary by showcasing the work being done by local activists and entrepreneurs in transportation, circular economics, eco-neighbourhoods, urban agriculture, zero waste consumption, and climate finance. Break-out sessions will allow you to offer your input and get involved more deeply if you so choose. Workshops and conferences will be followed by a 6-8.

RSVP here to join us for our 3rd anniversary and plan together the year ahead
