We live in an increasingly digitized world with information available at an ever-accelerating rate. Yet, answering questions of local progress on climate change - an issue frequently topping the World Economic Forum’s list of threats to the global economy - remains a challenge. Competition is a fact of life and has motivated some of our greatest achievements. Channelling that intrinsic desire to win to serve a positive purpose has led to projects like the Copenhagenize Bicycle Friendly Cities Index and the Economist Intelligence Unit’s Green City Index, among others.
Many such efforts fail to make a significant impact since they put little emphasis on educating and engaging citizens in the process. When voters understand the correlation between reduced emissions and healthier, safer, more resilient communities, policies to achieve those conjoined objectives will quickly follow.
Join Climate Reality staff and Ottawa Climate Hub volunteers, who have been developing this initiative for several months, as they walk Hubs through the steps that will produce preliminary National Climate League standings in April.
