Nominations Now Open for the Betty Blashill Prize

We are pleased to invite nominations for the 2015 Betty Blashill Prize.  While Betty and her positve, passionate and tireless environmental work are missed sorely since her death in 2006, we know others are taking up the torch to work hard towards improving Hamilton.  We hope to encourage others who work behind the scenes like Betty did.  The cash prize that accompanies this award may be used to advance the recipient's environmental efforts and knowledge or their work to reduce their ecological footprint.

Help Cities Get Ready For Climate Change!

On February 12th, the Province of Ontario's Ministry of Environment & Climate Change announced the launch of a Climate Change Consultation.  Ontarians are being invited to 'join the conversation on climate change' as the province works to 'prepare a new strategy to fight climate change.   We are all being invited to share our feedback on what matters to us.   A discussion paper is available on the Environmental Bill of Rights registry that Ontarians can review and comment on.    

Environment Hamilton, along with our partner organizations Toronto Environmental Alliance and Ecology Ottawa put out a press release today, calling on the province to help cities to get ready for climate change.   Cities need to demand more support from higher levels of government such as the province to help us to mitigate and adapt to climate change.  Click here to read our joint press release.  

The province is hosting an in-person public consultation session right here in Hamilton on MARCH 16th from 6pm - 8pm at the McMaster Innovation Park (175 Longwood Road South).  GET INVOLVED!
