What's Next for the Halton Climate Collective?

WE ARE READY FOR ACTION
Next Steps for 2019:

1. Introduce Halton Climate Collective Youth Stakeholders: 2 students from each geographic municipality in Halton: Oakville, Burlington, Halton Hills and Milton, and both the HDSB and the HCDSB are equally represented.

These dynamic young people are helping shape the HCC theory of change, conduct outreach, inform their peers of their work, and are tasked to plan a Youth Summit that will be held in Fall 2019. The Youth Summit will be designed by Youth for the Youth. 

2. Design two living laboratories to embed in our community. These labs will show collective action and results. The labs are innovative and will highlight ghg mitigation action in community. 

3. Promote and highlight current work being propelled by the HCC Leadership Team. 

4. More education and workshops that inspire our community to do more.

5. Finesse our action plan based on what our community has told us. This plan will include all the things the community wants us to track and communicate:
  • individual action that is trackable, 
  • fun competitions to engage community 
  • rewards and incentives, 
  • hyper-local ghg mitigation strategies,  
  • collective action projects.
