On September 20, the Town of Gibsons was recognized by the Community Energy Association for its Natural Asset Management as a Climate Adaptation Approach. Town Council and staff proudly accepted the Climate & Energy Action Award during the Union of BC Municipalities convention in Vancouver. The winners were selected from among 25 other nominees throughout BC.
“The judging committee felt that your natural asset work is cutting-edge and innovative. The diversity of actions, the engagement within the community, and the focus on natural ecosystem boundaries were highlights of the application. A lot of other communities can learn from this impressive and comprehensive work.” – Carly Johansson, Climate Leadership Specialist with the CEA
Thank you to the CEA for recognizing and celebrating climate work at the local level, and congratulations to the other six winners for their dedication to climate action in BC.
