FUTURE OF THE REGION SUSTAINABILITY DIALOGUES
Cities and regional governments are at the forefront of global action on climate change. Much of the infrastructure, as well as policies and initiatives that impact our neighbourhoods and daily lives, fall under local and regional responsibility.
Locally, Metro Vancouver and our member jurisdictions have been leaders in climate actions for almost 20 years. All municipalities are signatories to the BC Climate Action Charter for local governments, and are taking actions to ensure their communities are adapting to climate change and reducing emissions – but we need to do more.
The Metro Vancouver Board has committed to pursue a regional target of 80% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions from 2007 levels by 2050. In alignment with this target, Metro Vancouver is developing a Climate 2050 Strategic Plan with a vision to ensure our infrastructure, ecosystems, and communities are resilient to the impacts of climate change.
Join one of our public dialogues to learn about and share your views on Climate 2050. To get a jump-start on learning more about Climate 2050, visit our website.
