This project seeks to move the communities of Québec, the people who have chosen them and those who transform them, towards climate action.
Municipalities, citizens, businesses and real estate developers are engaged or are ready to engage in reducing GHG emissions and adapting to climate change. The project explains, equips, and trains agents of change in order to empower them to implement actions which will generate major recurring and sustainable gains, but also address multiple other challenges faced by all communities.
Through the project, Vivre en Ville shares its expertise and the content it has produced with the agents of change, the emphasis being put on how a regenerative urban growth model enables reductions of greenhouse gas emissions, increases our natural and agricultural lands’ value and fosters our adaptation to climate change.
Vivre en Ville thus offers:
- a one-stop shop website, rounding up all of Vivre en Ville’s tools which will be useful to the agents of change (documents, articles, websites, web platforms, videos) in a virtual library,
- a community of practice bringing together five committed communities receiving personalized support on climate action from Vivre en Ville’s team;
- a formative tour aiming to train agents of change in better understanding the challenges and obstacles experienced, and to transfer knowledge;
- a forum, held during Vivre en Ville’s annual symposium, the Rendez-vous Collectivités viables.
Vivre en ville is now looking for five municipalities committed to adapt and fight climate change, and wishing to be part of the 2022-2023 Climate-friendly communities community of practice.
