PCP’s Local Climate Change Heroes: Interviews
These leaders from across Canada are ready to help you take action on climate change
Climate protection starts with the action you take in your community, and people in Canadian cities and towns of all sizes are working hard to make the necessary changes.
In this series of interviews, we profile some of the people who are driving this positive change that range from an award-winning energy management program, to energy efficiency guidelines for construction, to climate adaptation planning, to waste diversion projects, and more.
Our goal with this series is to make it easier for you to connect with these members of the FCM-ICLEI Partners for Climate Protection (PCP) program who have experience realizing successful climate change initiatives in their municipalities.
Get to know these climate change heroes and gain insight from their on-the-ground experience to see how it can help you advance your own projects. Each interview includes the hero's areas of expertise and contact information so you can connect with them directly and exchange ideas.
Stay tuned as we publish new interviews of other PCP members now through 2017.
