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, they provide 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 254 municipalities that made environmental commitments with us in 2022 and hopes to rally even more cities for Earth Day 2023!

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 in order to create a healthier environment for their citizens.




Message from Dawn Arnold, Mayor of Moncton and Municipal Spokesperson for the 2022 Earth Day campaign

Dawn Arnold

“We are seeing the impacts of climate change all around the world, but the most profound impacts are being felt at the City level. In Moncton, we continue to take action to protect our City for generations to come through our Climate Action Report and the upcoming Community Energy and Emissions Plan, a plan that outlines our collective actions to become a net-zero City, together. On Earth Day and everyday, let’s celebrate the beauty of our Cities and remember that we can all change our habits for a brighter, more sustainable future.”
