What is the Biosphere Climate Action Hub? 

Welcome to the Bruce Peninsula Biosphere Association Climate Action Hub. The Hub aims to educate and encourage people like you to take Climate Action into your own hands. 

 

Climate Change is a threat to the lands and waters that we live, work and depend on. Engaging in direct Climate Action by lowering your personal greenhouse gas emissions not only mitigates your contribution to Climate Change, but further normalizes Climate-Conscious lifestyles, producing a ripple effect that has far-reaching impacts.

 

And if saving the planet isn't enough, it's important to know that lowering your emissions often leads to the added benefit of lower monthly energy bills and fuel costs!     

 

What can Grassroots Action do for a Global Challenge like Climate Change?

By addressing the Climate Crisis head on, we can show governments and corporations that citizens are serious about solving the Climate Crisis. Large-scale changes will be necessary to drastically reduce our carbon emissions, but action on a local scale can have far reaching positive impacts.

 

By committing to Climate Action, the Bruce Peninsula has an opportunity to emerge as a leader on the climate front. By engaging in widespread, grassroots Climate Action, we can prepare our community for the inevitable economic, social, and environmental challenges brought about by the Climate Crisis, while raising our profile as a truly unique community that successfully balances economic stability and prosperity with environmental responsibility.
