Public consultations will be held Saturday to discuss ways to reduce Winnipeg’s dependence on fossil fuels and improve resilience to climate change.
Transition Winnipeg released their document for creating a climate-resilient, low-carbon city in July. Winnipeg’s Great Transition is a community-sourced document outlining a environmentally sustainable vision for Winnipeg.
Tomorrow’s event, entitled “Igniting Winnipeg’s Great Transition,” will provide an opportunity for members of the public to inform the revision of Winnipeg’s Great Transition. The revised draft will be published and presented to policy-makers as Winnipeg’s vision for its own climate-resilient, low-carbon future.
Those who attend will also vote on three key points to be communicated to mayoral candidates.
The consultations will be held from 1-4:30 p.m. at the University of Winnipeg’s Convocation Hall.
