Oak Bay Coolkit

Be a Climate Champion in Oak Bay!

The Oak Bay Coolkit program is a joint initiative between the Collaborative for Advanced Landscape Planning at the University of British Columbia’s (UBC) Faculty of Forestry and the District, and is designed to engage residents on climate-change solutions in the community. 

The Coolkit is intended to mobilize individual and neighbourhood climate action through participation in a series of fun and interactive engagement activities, beginning with neighbourhood conversations, to local asset and climate vulnerability mapping, carbon footprint calculators, household and block sustainability ratings, visioning exercises and developing localized climate action plans. The ultimate goal of the Coolkit Program is to reduce carbon footprints and help create climate proof, resilient neighbourhoods. 

Interested? Get involved!

The District is looking for climate champions in the community who are interested in making a positive difference through developing and promoting household and neighbourhood solutions for climate change. 
A climate action workshop will be hosted by the District and UBC to engage, inform, and empower Oak Bay Climate Champions on how to develop collective action projects in thier neighbourhood.  Lunch and refreshments will be served. 
The training workshop will be held on:
