Welcome

Green Neighbours 21 is a grassroots, action-oriented group of people who live in Ward 21, Toronto (and beyond) who are working together to respond to climate change and other environmental issues. It is based on the belief that although the problems we face are complex and challenging, there is a lot that we can do to make a difference, and it’s a lot more fun and effective if we work together. The group helps members of the community to learn more about the issues and to live more lightly on the planet. It offers an opportunity for neighbours to meet, and helps build strong community.

Our next meeting

Mon, 11 May, 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm

Location: St. Matthew’s United Church, Room 27 (upstairs) 729 St. Clair W, one block west of Christie St. (enter from Rushton)

This year the Province of Ontario and the City of Toronto initiated processes calling for new ideas to deal with the challenges of climate change. On May 11th Paul Mero will share an idea Green 13 presented on how to use the most efficient heating and cooling systems – district wide ground source geothermal – in a new model which will also generate sustainable funding for municipal transit.

The presentation will examine the implications of using royalty based programs as an incentive for the Province, cities, companies, and residents to switch to locally available ground source geothermal resources.

Following the presentation there will be a discussion about the opportunities and challenges of using geothermal energy as a large-scale sustainable alternative to fossil fuels.

Please join us for this glimpse into a new way of making our cities sustainable.
