Road to 2030: Comox Valley Climate Action Challenge

Comox Valley Regional District announced the winners of the Road to 2030: Comox Valley Climate Action Challenge! The project aimed to build capacity, incentivize and catalyze community-led climate action initiatives. Road to 2030 offered a grant for community members and organizations to realize community-led climate actions. We are glad to have run together this program to support local community climate actions that will reduce GHG emissions in Comox Valley during the next ten years! 

Thank you to all the participants, and congratulations to the three winners:

– The Comox Youth Climate Council and Lush Valley Food Action Society will work together to design and install an “Edible Indigenous Plant Shelterbelt”

– The organization Conservancy Hornby Island will work with the community to plant trees locally with the project “Trees for Tomorrow”

– The Cumberland Forest Community Society will contribute to the protection of 12 ha of riparian and upland forest with the project “Lower Perseverance Corridor”

GHG Accounting provides a free listing of this project on the Local Carbon Registry, a platform to track and showcase GHG reduction projects combining all aspects of local climate action transparently and effectively.

We are excited now for these community climate actions to become real!
