REGULAR MEETINGS: 2nd + 4th Tuesday of Every Month @ 6:30 PM at Fairfield Community Place (1330 Fairfield Road).
May 2020 ~ Folks from the Climate Action Group have launched The Community Voice Project, sharing stories about how our community is thriving during these changing times and paving the way for a brighter future post pandemic. They are interviewing community members and asking questions about their challenges, learnings, and positive changes in relation to themselves, the environment and the community. These interviews will be posted on a region wide community response website. Check it out here. Are you open to sharing your experiences? If so, they would love to interview you! Contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Spring Transportation Climate Pledge ~ Participants Needed!
The Fairfield Climate Action Group has been working on an exciting new project! This spring they will be launching a climate pledge pilot program to unite our community to take action in the current climate crisis. The first pledge will focus on transportation. The main goals will be to reduce our transportation footprint by reducing the number of car trips made, increasing the number of people using public transportation, and contacting public transit authorities to advocate for public transportation improvement.
Why join the pledge program:
- To be leaders in climate action and set an example for others to follow.
- We are stronger when we act as a community in addressing climate change.
- To be empowered as individuals addressing climate change.
- To create a sustainable neighborhood for future generations.
Stay tuned for more information on this exciting new project. Together we can create a sustainable future for our community.
Traffic calming in your street- contact us!
FGCA supports the City of Victoria’s Climate Leadership Plan, and its efforts to make it easier and safer for people to chose alternatives to the single-occupant motor vehicle. Making streets safer will require traffic calming in some areas, and FGCA has notified the City about four neighbourhood streets in particular (see letter here). If you are interested in traffic calming on your street, please get in touch!
