A London, Ont., environmental group has launched an initiative to promote the City’s climate action plan.

Climate Action London’s new campaign, called Connect with the London Climate Plan, invites Londoners to come together to take collective action on climate change.

The group’s co-founder Mary Ann Hodge tells 980 CFPL the initiative will help Londoners better understand and connect to the City of London’s Climate Emergency Action Plan.

“This plan has 10 different areas of focus (and) it’s so hard for people to figure out how they can connect to it,” she said. “We’ve figured out a way for people to connect to other people in the community (so) you can ask a question and our partners like the London Environment Network will chime in with an answer.”

“This is a way that we could all come together and learn from each other,” she continued.

The connection is made through an online form. The goal is to reach 10,000 connections.
