What is climate change? How does it impact our community? What actions can we take to limit climate change? There are many layers to this complex predicament and the more we know, the faster we can move forward with building a brighter future together.

You’ve come to the right place to expand your knowledge about climate change! We’ve created a content library that will help you gain a greater understanding of the science and issues, so you feel empowered to set your own climate action goals.

Don’t forget to share these resources with your friends, family, colleagues, and neighbours!
