In big cities across Canada, the leaders of the Low Carbon Cities Canada (LC3) network and its founders are finding new ways to address climate change by breaking down barriers to implement and scale up low carbon solutions, and to support their cities in reaching their climate change targets.
Municipalities are at the leading edge of developing and implementing climate change solutions to reduce greenhouse gases, build resilient communities, improve the quality of life of their citizens, and much more. Each LC3 Centre will focus on addressing the unique needs of their local communities, such as:
- investing in ways to reduce emissions from buildings;
- taking advantage of urban renewable energy opportunities;
- implementing transportation solutions; and
- finding new ways to decarbonize fossil fuels.
In this article series, we focus on getting to know the pioneers of the LC3 network.
