About the Advisory Group on Community Hubs and Climate Action
The Advisory Group was convened to explore the role of community hubs in local engagement strategies and achieving community climate goals. The Group was made up of a range of stakeholders including multi-agency community hubs, faith-based hubs, community centres, civil society organizations, and City of Toronto Divisions (see Annex A for a list of Advisory Group member organizations). During four meetings held between June and October, 2019, the Group shared knowledge, built relationships across sectors, and made recommendations for the next phase (2021-2023) of Toronto’s TransformTO climate action plan.
