Energy Initiative for Hamilton Faith Groups

How energy smart is your faith group?

This fall, Environment Hamilton launched a new project aimed at helping Hamilton area faith groups to conserve energy both at home and in their places of worship (click here to see poster)

The project focuses on promoting energy conservation and renewable forms of energy.  Information is offered to facilitate do-it-yourself and professional audits of both private homes and places of worship.   Click here to view the Home Energy Conservation Planner we have developed for this project.

Arrangements can be made for screenings of the films 'An Inconvenient Truth' and 'A Crude Awakening' at your place of workship. 



Tours of Dave and Cathy Braden's super energy efficient, off-the-grid house are available for members of your faith group, as well as tours of Green Venture's EcoHouse.








Bussing arrangements can be made through the project to reach these tour sites.



Contact Beatrice at or at (905) 549-0900 for more information.

Environment Hamilton's Energy Initiatve for Faith Groups is funded by Ontario Ministry of Energy & Infrastructure's Community Conservation Initiatives program.

About Hamilton Climate Challenge

Climate change is one of the biggest threats to our planet. Global warming is caused by human activity so it is everyone's responsibility to be part of the solution.

Hamilton Climate Challenge is a project of Environment Hamilton with the goal of inspiring citizens to make personal commitments to reduce their green house gas emissions in a community-wide effort to combat climate change. The project's aim is to encourage Hamiltonians to find ways of living in a sustainable way with the environment.

Hamilton Climate Challenge works closely with community partners to deliver practical hands on workshops, lectures, film screenings and freec events to the public.

Hamilton Climate Challenge has been working to help groups such as area faith groups to adopt sustainable practices in their places of workship.
