Fellow residents have banded together to form the Wasaga Beach Climate Action Team

On May 25th 2021 the Town Council of Wasaga Beach passed a CLIMATE EMERGENCY DECLARATION. The Town has officially joined the global movement and committed to initiating actions to cut carbon emissions.

International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC):

  • made it clear that the extreme weather conditions (high temperatures, fires, storms, flooding) are a direct result of carbon emissions into the atmosphere
  • projected that the climate will only get worse unless we implement change
  • predicted that life along water shorelines will be particularly impacted
  • In Wasaga Beach, we continue to see the increase in volatility, high water levels, low water levels and extreme winter storms that ravage our shoreline.

 

Wasaga Beach Climate Action Team’s mission:

  • work collaboratively with the local government, residents, and businesses to help implement the changes required to mitigate and adapt to the impact of Climate Change

 

Stay Engaged!

  • It is important that our community be engaged in all aspects of the Town’s decisions. It is at the municipal level that we, the residents, can be the most influential and will receive the most benefit.
  • Message us or Email or call us today and let us know how you would like us to keep you informed.
