Municipalities celebrating with Earth Day Canada and driving the ecological transition
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.
Municipalities in Action
Cities and towns across Canada are mobilizing to take bold steps toward creating healthier environments, using Earth Day in particular to make a positive impact. These municipalities are also contributing to the ecological transition by organizing and supporting actions in celebration of Earth Day, to encourage everyone to join the movement and get involved.
Earth Day Canada thanks the 114 municipalities that have committed to 2021 with us. Do you work for a municipality that wants to join the movement next year? Write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org
