We all want solutions — and Salt Spring Islanders are ahead of the curve in developing innovative and inspiring responses that build the resilient community we’ll need as the impacts from climate change accelerate.

Hear about how our island is planting the seeds of sustainability, and how you can get involved in a cutting-edge climate action movement rooted right here on Salt Spring. Find out about the key risks our island faces from forest fires, deeper droughts, increasing storms, and rising sea levels. And dig into a rich conversation about what we can do about them: together.

Elizabeth May will join Bryan Young in a conversation about climate action. They will help unpack some of the key calls to action in the Climate Action Plan: more than 250 recommendations on what we all need to do now to ensure a sustainable future for Salt Spring Island.

The Salt Spring Climate Action Plan (CAP 2.0) has identified several key climate risks we are now facing. The conclusion: risks related to forest fire, storms, drought & sea-level rise require immediate action to keep us safe. And to keep us safe we need to protect our forest and freshwater ecosystems.

After more than a year and a half of work on the part of a team of 30+ local volunteers and feedback from 2,000 islanders and 50 stakeholders, Transition Salt Spring is proud to announce the release of the Salt Spring Island Climate Action Plan—a roadmap with more than 250 recommendations on what we all can do now to ensure a sustainable future for Salt Spring Island.

To implement the Climate Action Plan, Transition Salt Spring is working with others to develop a strong and active network of islanders, businesses, non-profits, agencies and government to develop the projects and initiatives we will need to keep our communities and ecosystems safe in the coming decades.

Transition Salt Spring is inviting Salt Spring Islanders to join us as a part of the “ONE COOL ISLAND” campaign where we can work together on solutions to help us do all that we can as individuals and families to take action on climate change.
