What is Climate Action Muskoka?
We are individuals and groups concerned about climate change here in Muskoka. We agree that climate change is the issue of our time, that we can and must take definitive action to face it, and that we are stronger if we work together. This is an inclusive, non-partisan group that’s all about positive change. We invite everyone in Muskoka concerned about climate change to get involved.
Climate Strikes during Covid-19
We hope you’re holding up during this extraordinary time, staying at home and staying healthy as we all work together to curb Covid-19. We encourage everyone to participate in digital climate strikes and pop-up strikes on your street, every Friday from 11:30 am to 12:30 pm. Thanks for continuing to show solidarity with your fellow strikers worldwide.
Climate Action Muskoka has developed a resolution to declare a climate emergency, to be presented to councils throughout our region.
This resolution is based on similar resolutions in other Canadian communities and was developed in consultation with local politicians and environmental advocates.
We are appealing to everyone in Muskoka — individuals (including seasonal residents and cottagers), groups and businesses to support this resolution by signing your endorsement.
