A vegetarian lunch will be provided.

For information on results to date visit the website www.ottawaclimatesolutions.net which includes priorities and policy actions developed by 11 discussion groups, on Nature, Food, Buildings and Transportation, as well as the Economy. It also contains several videos relevant to the ongoing development of Ottawa’s new Official Plan (from Dianne Saxe, former Environment Commissioner for the Province of Ontario, and from Mitchell Beer, the Managing Editor of The Energy Mix). Importantly, the site provides you with an opportunity to comment and contribute to the ongoing development of “The People’s Plan for Ottawa’s Climate Emergency”. To do so, and to build momentum behind climate action, Sign-up to the Forum. To voice your support for an end to urban sprawl in Ottawa, send an email to your City Councillor and the Mayor, over on Ecology Ottawa's website.
