Environmental Defense Community on Climate Change have three objectives:

  • Educate participants about climate change science, impacts, and solutions
  • Engage participants to take action
  • Support participants by providing the ideas, resources, and contacts to take action in their communities and to further educate others


Up to half of Canada’s greenhouse gas emissions are under the direct or indirect influence of municipal governments. With small changes to decision making, planning, and priorities, Manitobans can create climate-friendly communities while continuing to develop economically.

Communities can take action in the areas of

  • transportation
  • agriculture
  • waste management
  • energy efficiency
