FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 03/05/2022
MONTREAL: Coalition Climat Montréal has completed a community conversation on the links between climate change, income security and community resilience in the greater Montréal area.
Organized in partnership with the Green Resilience Project, the conversation aimed to identify and document a wide range of perspectives on what community members need to build resilience and encourage local action on all the aspects of the climate crisis.
Climate change and income insecurity are two of the most urgent challenges facing Montréal residents. The conversation brought community members together to discuss the connections between these issues, brainstorm solutions and identify what they need to put them into action.
Details from the conversation will be shared in the Green Resilience Project’s final report, to be published in April 2022.
