Event description

Description

Help shape the updated Saanich Climate Plan!

*Child minding available this date only!*

How should Saanich respond to climate change? We heard in Phase 1 that respondents want to see urgent, effective climate action that protects our health and well being and the local environment. These Phase 2 Open Houses will share results from Phase 1 engagement and draft actions for reaching climate targets.

This free event includes a drop-in open house and optional 45 minute presentations about electric vehicles and making your home more climate-friendly, and rebates available to help. Light refreshments will be provided.

Consider getting here sustainably! Can you walk, bike, bus, or carpool? The venue is 6 minutes from the Galloping Goose trail by bike, and is serviced by busses 6, 32, and 39, and a 13 minute walk from the Royal Oak Exchange with 9 additional busses from around the region. To find out more about getting there by bus, visit www.bctransit.com/victoria or call the BC Transit Bus Line at 250-382-6161.

Open House - Drop In
4pm to 8pm in the Lower Hall

The Open House Drop-In will present the draft climate actions for the Saanich Climate Plan for your feedback, including how we will reduce our community greenhouse gas emissions and prepare for a changing climate. There will be opportunities to speak with Saanich staff, to complete surveys, and to submit ideas for the plan.


Free Presentations: Climate-Friendly Homes and Electric Vehicles

There are two free 30 minute presentations: Climate Friendly Homes and Electric Vehicles. Participants can attend either or both, and there will be plenty of time for questions and answers. Please pre-register. Drop-in spaces may be available.


Climate Friendly Homes

Presenter: Elena Dopfer with City Green Solutions, a Victoria-based energy efficiency non-profit.
