Change for Climate Talks is being hosted as part of the City of Edmonton’s Change for Climate program.

Change for Climate is a call to all Edmontonians to take action on climate change and work together to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions. Climate change has reached a critical moment and surveys show 73% of Edmontonians believe we need to take action now. To help them find ways to act on climate change we developed a spectrum of over 30 actions they can do at home, in their commute, in their lifestyles. We know Edmontonians are already doing many of these actions and we want to encourage them to go further and commit to larger, more impactful actions.

We invite Edmontonians to go to to find actions they can do and share their commitment by using the hashtag #changeforclimate or submitting their story to the blog.
