The City of Vernon is committed to taking action on climate change. To this end the City has created a Climate Action Advisory Committee and is preparing a climate action plan. This plan will propose a vision for a climate resilient Vernon and address both mitigation of greenhouse gases and preparation for the impacts of climate change.
The community has an important role in building a climate resilient future and the committee is reaching out to the community in a number of ways. This weekend the community is invited to visit the City of Vernon Climate Action Advisory Committee’s booth at the Sunshine Festival.
At the booth you can:
- Get information about the committee and the planning process
- Share your thoughts about climate change
- View art from local youth showing how they see the future in the face of climate change
- Talk to Committee members about climate change and what Vernon is doing.
