ClimateActionWR will be presenting their TransformWR Climate Action Strategy to Waterloo Region Townships and Cities starting May 31 and ending June 22. As the dates for these council meetings draw closer, we're hosting pre delegation meetings to learn how we can delegate alongside each other in support of the report and 50by30.
Starting end of May and through June, the TransformWR report with its proposed climate action strategy will be getting brought forward to local councils and the Region for approval. We wish to encourage local residents of each municipality to come out in support of the report and 50by30, and consider making a delegation at the council meetings.
We need to 'fill the room'!
Calling on 50by30 supporters to
attend and delegate at upcoming
Note: As council meetings are now virtual for the time being, there are two ways to show up to council: 1) By watching the video livestream, in which case council will see the numbers watching but won't see you - video livestreams linked in each event, 2) By signing up as a delegate to speak to council, in which case you will have a set time to speak directly to council, and will be given a separate link to do so. Details for how to register as a delegate are in each event. Join a pre-delegation meeting (above) for more information and to practice with other speakers! You can also send an email message in support of 50by30 to local councils on the Action Page here.
#PoliticsToday is a virtual series about political issues and engagement in Waterloo Region and the broader political sphere.

50 by 30 Faith: A Local Call to Action
This event brought together people of faith and goodwill in a space to catalyze further faith-led climate justice action here in our region. It was co-hosted by Faith Climate Justice WR and 50by30 Waterloo Region.
The event will feature speakers from the University of Waterloo’s Interdisciplinary Centre on Climate Change (IC3), activists and community stakeholders as they weigh in on this past year of sounding the ALARM and the changes that we still need to make.
Imagining a Just, Green Waterloo Region
