It has been 4 months since we launched the Climate Change Adaptation Toolkit in Kitchener. This toolkit, though focusing on residents of Waterloo Region, has been noticed worldwide, including UNFCCC and East African Climate Center. However, Our work on adapting to climate change is far from done. To get to the next step, we need your help to share your stories.
From July 25 to Aug 8, you have the chance to win one of two free one-year memberships to Community Access Bikeshare. To enter the #MyClimateStory Contest share with us (twitter or facebook or G+) how you are adapting to climate change.
Here’s what you’ve got to do:
- Read our toolkit Online or check it out at KPL, WPL, Cambridge Library, or Regional Library.
- Tweet, FB or G+ with #MyClimateStory. Share your idea, suggestion, experience or story of applying actions in our toolkit to your daily life. How did it impact you or your family’s life? Just remember the hashtag #MyClimateStory in your post.
The Contest will run from July 25th -Aug 8th, and winner will be randomly chosen and announced on Aug 10. The contest is only open to those who live in Kitchener-Waterloo.
