Climate Legacy – About Us
Climate Legacy is a project to engage and mobilize older Canadians in climate action, through their voice, their time, and their money. Our vision is that Canada move steadily and effectively towards a zero net carbon economy in the next decade through actions at municipal, provincial and federal levels. Seniors comprise a significant force in combatting climate change and are often overlooked in current mobilizing efforts, which is why we are establishing a climate action platform and resource dedicated to Older Canadians.
