The Community Engagement team works with local politicians, businesses, and organizations to promote and support policies and practices that enable the shift to a sustainable Collingwood and an economy based on renewable energy.
We meet with government officials and staff to encourage progressive policies focusing on environmental sustainability. We promote and contribute to local journalism’s efforts to inform the public. We liaise with business and support their sustainable initiatives and interact with fellow citizens about opportunities to respond to the climate crisis. Our team aims for awareness of and action on climate change issues.
We are proud of the strong working relationship we have achieved so far with the Town of Collingwood and look forward to continuing our joint efforts. Starting in late fall of 2020 we will actively be involved in the Town’s climate action work and supporting the role of residents and community groups.
We would be delighted to have others join our team and expand our reach.
