New ways to participate in London’s Climate Emergency Action Plan

This fall, the City of London will continue to develop our community’s Climate Emergency Action Plan. The plan’s development had been disrupted due to COVID-19, but the City is creating more time and new opportunities for Londoners to participate.

The Climate Emergency Action Plan is an urgent response to our changing climate. The goals are to reduce London’s greenhouse gas emissions by at least 30% by 2030 and reach net-zero by 2050.

Get involved - Londoners can participate online at getinvolved.london.ca/climate. New content has been added and both residents and businesses can review how the plan is being developed, identify what they feel should be priorities in the plan, and provide feedback.

Connect directly - Events and in person opportunities to participate have been impacted by COVID-19, but individuals and groups hoping to connect with staff directly can email climateaction@london.ca. City staff will also be proactively approaching a number of local organizations this fall and winter to collect feedback. 

Join the conversation - There are many local initiatives the City of London partners on to help engage residents and businesses with the City’s environmental programs.

  • Green in the City is a series of free environmentally themed workshops this October online. Registration is currently open.
  • My Wild Green Home is a new platform bringing together local environmental organizations, and aims to help Londoners take climate action at home.
  • Green Economy London is launching a new online tool this fall to help businesses understand and improve their energy use.

The City of London will continue to adapt and develop new ways for Londoners to participate this fall and winter, and will be sharing updates online and on social media over the coming weeks.
