A strategy that will outline actions to mitigate climate change and prepare the community for a changing climate is being created by the Township of Langley.
On Tuesday, November 5, the public is encouraged to learn about the new Climate Action Strategy, provide ideas and input to help shape it, and hear from climate change experts. The free Climate Action Event, which will feature presentations and panel discussions designed to inspire participant feedback, will be held from 7:00 to 8:30pm in the Civic Facility’s Fraser River Presentation Theatre. To register, visit tol.ca/climateaction.
Joining Township Sustainability staff members for the event will be guest speaker Sara Muir Owen, UBC Program Manager at the Pacific Institute for Climate Solutions. Opening remarks will be provided by Township of Langley Mayor Jack Froese.
“Climate change is happening. It cannot be ignored and we all have a role to play in making a difference, whether we are a resident, business, or a government,” said Froese.
Earlier this year, Township Council accelerated the municipality’s climate action commitment by passing a motion acknowledging the climate crisis.
