Today, Take Time to Reflect on what it means to be Canadian

In Canada, we are blessed with diverse landscapes and diverse people - both of which make us stronger in the face of climate change and other challenges we will face. 

May we all come together to love, learn and embrace what is good.  May we find the strength to move forward and find appreciation for each other and gratitude for the land, water, air, fire, animals, and plants that sustain this planet and us all. 

We acknowledge and thank the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation for being stewards of the traditional territory in which the HEN office resides.

Let us work together towards creating a community where everyone feels respected and welcomed.

POP-WHAT?  POP-UP!  CLEAN-UP!

Have you noticed a lot of waste and litter in your community? Do you want to get involved and help a local clean-up?

Halton Environmental Network is excited to get the Halton community outside and enjoying our incredible green space this Summer. Made possible through the help of Dillon Consulting!

We have introduced the Litterati app that will help measure and track litter picked up by Halton residents as they tackle the continuing waste problem in our green spaces and waterways.

Not only is this a great opportunity for Halton youth to get outside and earn community involvement hours, but they can do so in a manner that abides by all provincial and local COVID-19 protocols while improving their local environment too.

Together, we can come together as a community to clean, protect and celebrate the green spaces we enjoy. Register now at bit.ly/PopUpCleanUp2021 or go to our website for more information.

The Town of Halton Hills: 
 Low-Carbon Transition Strategy
The Town of Halton Hills and the Multi-Stakeholder Governance Committee has been developing an evidence-based and community-targeted Low-Carbon Transition Strategy. The goal is for the town to reach net-zero carbon emissions by the year 2030. Modeling a set of actions across all sectors shows the town can reduce 75% of its current emissions by 2030, despite significant population growth projected over the next decade (45%). The strategy addresses the remaining emissions by purchasing carbon offsets. The following survey will be used to design climate goals that are specifically tailored to residents. All responses will be confidential and only used for statistical purposes. For more information about this article and for the survey click here 

Watch this  video to learn more about the Low-Carbon Transition Strategy.
The Town of Halton Hills Climate Change Investment Fund Invites Applicants!

Applicants should apply to the CCIF for funding that supports the goal of mitigations and adaptation

Applicants that have been selected for funding will receive $2,000 from the funding budget of $15,000 available for 2021. Applications are due by Tuesday, August 3rd, 2021 and are welcome anytime before the deadline. The CCIF applications and guidelines can be found here
