MY LEAD PLATFORM: CLIMATE NOW 'What are we waiting for?'
The United Nations General Assembly, on July 28, 2022, adopted a historic resolution, declaring that
'access to a clean, healthy and sustainable environment is a universal human right'.
As a result, the next Mayor and Council must commit to protecting the health and safety of our citizens by prioritizing clean air and environmental initiatives, which will ultimately benefit the health and wellbeing of all Burlingtonians.
I strongly believe that Burlington has the potential and the opportunity to be a leader in environmental and clean air initiatives, and be a role model for other cities to follow.
We need to be more proactive and strategic in all climate strategies. Policies, bylaws and rules are not motivating action on climate. We need vision and environmental stewardship education to inspire staff and citizens to 'be the pollution solution.'
