Calling all Media!

Hamilton Climate Challenge
Your Community, Your Climate, Your Challenge

Media Conference
Thursday 9:30 am
Hamilton City Hall – Room 110

Environment Hamilton is launching the Hamilton Climate Challenge on Thursday, July 12. when we begin circulating a climate pledge in Hamilton neighbourhoods that invites residents to take specific steps to reduce their personal greenhouse gases emissions.

Global climate change caused by air pollution is also very evident locally. Hamilton has already had a dozen days with temperatures over 30 degrees centigrade and 22 days of smog advisories, and the summer has just gotten underway.

Cutting greenhouse gases is a responsibility for both individuals and governments. Environment Hamilton is encouraging residents both to do their part and to ask their political representatives to do likewise.

Residents who accept the challenge will receive an energy saving kit to help them achieve even more greenhouse gas reductions.

Photo Opportunity

Environment Hamilton volunteers will kick off the door-to-door climate challenge in the Corktown neighbourhood after the media conference.

Media are invited to join us at 11 am at the front door of Corktown resident Sean Burak for a media and photo opportunity to photograph canvassing .
