Governments, businesses and representatives from civil society are meeting in Paris this month with the goal of creating a legally binding and universal agreement on climate. Vancouver continues to be at the forefront of global efforts to act on climate change - a world leader and example of how cities can build strong, green, and resilient economies.
Building on the successes of the Greenest City 2020 Action Plan and the City's new commitment to 100% Renewable Energy by 2050, Vancouver's leadership and innovation have helped to shape and inspire how other cities and governments around the world are taking action.
In the last six months alone, representatives from the City of Vancouver have participated in important conversations at the Vatican, the United Nations, and the White House - and now the world is truly coming together to take action at the COP21 Climate Change Summit in Paris.
Vancouver must continue to lead - and all of levels of government must act - and act decisively. The challenge is urgent, but by working together we can help ensure that Paris marks the start of an important next chapter in how the international community will take action to protect our environment, our economy, and the future of our planet.
Join Councillor Andrea Reimer to discuss Vancouver's successes in the effort to combat climate change and our challenges as we move forward as a world leader.
