Climate change is real, and it's already affecting Hamilton.
In 2016, Environment Hamilton officially launched it's climate change campaign - with the specific goal of educating the public and advocating for our city to mitigate and adapt to our changing climate. While we are facing a global issue that cannot be solved by us alone, it is widely acknowledged everywhere the vital role cities have to play in helping stem the emission of greenhouse gases - but also how important it is we prepare our cities for the accelerating changes we've already begun to experience here at home.
