On October 14, Councillor Paula Fletcher (Ward 30 Toronto Danforth), Chair of the Parks and Environment Committee, and other members of City Council will host an Energy Action Forum to invite residents to help create Phase 2 of the City’s environmental framework, The Power to Live Green.

Date: Wednesday, October 14

Time: 6 to 9 p.m.

Location: Council Chamber, City Hall, 100 Queen St. W.

The evening will begin with an update on Phase 1 of the City’s Climate Change, Clean Air and Sustainable Energy Action Plan, a framework unanimously adopted by City Council in 2007. Phase 1 contains 68 core actions aimed at reducing Toronto’s greenhouse gas emissions by 80 per cent by 2050.
