Hamilton first in Ontario with a Climate Charter
Dundas in Transition has participated in the development of the Hamilton Climate Action Charter. This is an exciting development as Hamilton will be the first community in Ontario to create such a Charter. A copy of this Charter can be downloaded from the Hamilton Climate Change Champions web site. Many Hamilton organizations are signing up, including Dundas inTransition, and you can too as an individual, family, organization or business through the Hamilton Climate Change Champions website.
The Charter was signed by Mayor Bob Bratina on behalf of the City of Hamilton on Wednesday October 26th 2011.
The Council of Canadians has developed resources at systemchange.ca to discuss the changes needed for the community to reduce the impact our current way of life has on the earth's climate. Localization of the economy, reduction of fossil fuel use and a change from a "growth economy" are all discussed.
A Good Food Box comes to Dundas
We have now entered our second year of running the Good Food Box ; this is part of our drive to build our local capacity for fresh food. We are running this project in association with Environment Hamilton's Eat Local project. Details of the Dundas project can be found on our GOOD FOOD BOX menu item at the left. Send us an email if you would like to volunteer to help in this project, or if you are interested in becoming a customer.
