Addressing climate change can feel overwhelming, but together we can make progress locally! Neighbouring for Climate is a City of Edmonton initiative to bring neighbours together to take action on climate change.
With easy-to-use climate action cards, Neighbouring for Climate provides suggestions and tips for reducing greenhouse gas emissions and helping to adapt our neighbourhoods for a changing climate. As a bonus, the program also provides opportunities for neighbours to come together, save money, learn new skills, create beautiful communities and have fun.
Who is this for?
This toolkit is for everyone. Neighbouring for Climate was designed with input from Edmontonians to make climate action with your neighbours as easy as possible. It allows neighbours to select actions that work best for them and their neighbourhood based on existing assets, skills, and ideas.
Whether you are new to getting to know your neighbours, taking climate action, or have been involved in initiatives for years, there are lots of ways to get involved and support one another, regardless of experience.
This program was co-created with community members in the fall of 2022. The toolkit will be piloted throughout 2023 with neighbourhoods across the city. This pilot will help us learn from neighbours on the ground about what is working, and what could be improved, and collect other ideas about how to improve the program for everyone.
If you are interested in being involved, or start using the tools on this web page on your own, please reach out to email@example.com with your name and neighbourhood.
The toolkit provides the information you and your neighbours will need to start climate action on your block or in your neighbourhood. The cards are designed to be sorted, shared and discussed – so sit around a kitchen table with your neighbours and just play! Though some of the actions can be done solo, we recommend getting together with your neighbours for even more benefits and fun.
