We've created Climate Emergency Dialogue kits for people who would like to talk about climate actions with their networks – whether you are connecting online or with members of your household.
The kits guide you through a conversation on the 19 proposed actions that Vancouver is considering to tackle the climate emergency, while making our city more resilient and livable for generations to come. We'll use the feedback received to help shape the Climate Emergency Action Plan heading to Council in November 2020.
Deadline for feedback is May 24
Dialogue kits have instructions, tips, and discussion prompts so that you have all you need to convene a conversation. Use the virtual dialogue survey to run one online, or download the files to use with members of your household.
