Kawartha Lakes Healthy Environment Plan

Kawartha Lakes Healthy Environment Plan

The City of Kawartha Lakes is developing a Healthy Environment Plan that will ensure the resilience of our community in the face of climate change. The Kawartha Lakes Healthy Environment Plan (KLHEP) is a comprehensive strategy that will address climate change mitigation and adaptation. Mitigation efforts identified in the KLHEP will focus on the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, while adaptation efforts will focus on preparing for the anticipated impacts of climate change such as warmer temperatures and more intense precipitation patterns.

Have Your Say

The KLHEP is a City-led, community-focused initiative. Mitigating and adapting to climate change requires support from individuals, businesses, institutions and various levels of government and as such community involvement is vital to the development of the Healthy Environment Plan. We all have a role to play in ensuring the resiliency and prosperity of our community.

There are three ways you can get involved and provide your input on the Healthy Environment Plan.

 Climate Action Conversations
Join us for a series of interactive Climate Action Conversations across the City of Kawartha Lakes this summer! Learn more about how the weather is changing in our community, tell us how climate change has impacted you and share your big ideas to address our changing climate. All feedback collected from the Climate Action Conversations will help shape the Healthy Environment Plan. Community ambassadors will have booths at various community events and festivals including Settlers' Day (June 10), the Coboconk Freshwater Summit (June 16), the Woodville Family Festival (July 7) as well as many other events through the summer. Stay tuned to the City's Events Calendar to find a Climate Action Conversation happening near you.

A workshop-in-a-box toolkit has been developed to help community members host their own conversations about climate change with family members, neighbours, co-workers and community groups and organizations. The workshop is designed for groups of up to twenty people and typically takes one hour, but can be shortened or lengthened to suit the needs of each group. Workshops can occur where groups regularly meet or at locations that are convenient for those partaking in the workshop. The workshop-in-a-box comes with a workshop kit and brief presentation, available for download below.
