The Role of Municipalities in the Ecological Transition

With urban areas set to become home to two-thirds of the world population by 2050 and as climate change is being observed and experienced at an increasingly local level, cities find themselves at the frontline of the battle against climate change. Bringing together innovators from every sector provides an indispensable setting for idea-sharing, and problem-solving.

Municipal governments have a firsthand understanding of community needs and are capable of greater agility to take swift concrete measures, with effects that ripple well beyond local spheres.

As we face mounting environmental challenges, it will be our towns and cities that take a leading role in the fight for a more sustainable world. Earth Day Canada thanks the 150 municipalities that made environmental commitments with us in 2023. We hope to rally even more cities for Earth Day 2024!

Join the movement of Mobilizing Municipalities

Earth Day, celebrated on April 22 each year, is a key time to unite our community and make a positive impact on the environment. Many municipalities across Canada are being proactive and taking bold steps to be part of the ecological transition to create a healthier environment for their citizens.

 

2024 Edition

Message from Stéphane Boyer, Mayor of Laval and municipal spokesperson
for the Earth Day 2024 campaign

“Protecting our natural environment and ensuring our city’s resilience to the impacts of climate change has been a priority since the beginning of our term in office. To follow through on this promise, our goal is to accelerate the introduction of efficient and attractive transportation alternatives for Laval residents. By deploying electric scooter stations, increasing the number of BIXI stations (bike share) on the territory and making our bicycle and pedestrian networks safer, we aim to ensure better sharing of the road, but above all to reduce our footprint on the environment.”

English and French subtitles are available.

Embrace sustainable mobility in 2024

This year’s media campaign highlighted sustainable mobility and aimed to encourage
as many citizens as possible to try a more sustainable mode of transportation.
