    Calgary City Council: Take Climate Action Now

    City Council has reaffirmed the need to act on climate change in the 2018 Climate Resilience Plan and has recognized that doing so offers opportunities for Calgarians. We call upon City Council to fulfill this vision by adopting a climate-positive budget with measures that will improve the quality of life for all Calgarians, including seniors, low-income households, and students. This will build a socially just and vibrant Calgary. We want to see these firm commitments from City Council in this budget cycle: 1. Low-Carbon Action Committee: Uphold the City’s Commitments and Engage CalgariansCreate a committee of impartial climate change experts to monitor and report on the Calgary Climate Resilience Strategy, and advise on efficient climate action for the City. 2. Active Transportation: Increase Mobility Options to Help Calgarians Get AroundIncrease public transit hours and public transit service; Invest in electric buses; Continue to invest in low-income transit passes (Fair Entry program); Continue to invest in protected bike lanes. 3. Energy Efficiency: Reduce Energy Use and Save Calgarians MoneyInvest in programs that enable Calgarians to make their homes and businesses more energy efficient and generate their own (renewable) energy to reduce their energy bills AFTER SIGNING, GOT AN ITCH TO DO MORE? Look up how to contact your Councillor here.  Submit written feedback to the City regarding this budget cycle between Nov 14th - 26th here. If you want help with any of these actions or just want to reach out, don't hesitate to email us at climatehubcalgary@gmail.com.Calgary Climate Hub ~ Facebook ~ Twitter
