The City of Hamilton is working with the community to develop a Community Climate Change Action Plan to help the Hamilton community address climate change and become more resilient to the impacts of climate change that can be expected to occur in and around Hamilton over the coming decades. The plan will focus on adapting and preparing the community for the risks of climate change, such as more variable and extreme weather, more social and infrastructure stresses, risks to infrastructure, and insurance costs. It will also address reducing the community’s contributions to climate change, such as the emission of greenhouse gases, a major contributor to climate change.
We will be forming a number of Task Forces to work in more depth on theme-specific discussions over the length of developing the Plan. Learn more about these at the event or contact us at email@example.com.

In Hamilton, people and organizations across the city are taking action against climate change in creative ways and we want to know about it. Some people and organization are noticing the impacts of climate change and we want to know about that too.
What are you doing to take action? What have you noticed? Take a picture of it and help us put it on the Hamilton Climate Change Map to show and share what you and others are doing in Hamilton.
The McMaster Centre for Climate Change with support from the Hamilton Climate Change Charter have put together an on-line interactive map where you can see and find out about interesting projects or actions that you never knew existed in Hamilton addressing climate change. Many of these actions may inspire you or others in the community to do more.
