Have you ever wondered how your daily lifestyle impacts climate change? Join Mariana Higgins, Project Neutral’s Community Engagement Intern, and Moises Albanes, Green Venture’s Energy Programs Coordinator to learn how to measure your carbon footprint and discuss home energy retrofits.
This workshop will help you understand where your household carbon footprint comes from and how you can take action to reduce your impact on the environment. It will also share information on funding that homeowners can access to help pay for home energy improvements.
Green Venture is offering this workshop to provide community members (from the Niagara Region to Oakville) with more information on the Greener Homes Grant and the Enbridge Home Energy Rebate programs where homeowners can receive up to $5000.00 for home energy retrofits. They will be delivering this event in partnership with Project Neutral, using their carbon calculator platform.
When: Monday, March 7th
Time: 6:30pm-8:00pm EST.
Location: Virtual (Register for the event here).

Increasing airborne Particulate Matter emissions in the City of Hamilton are a concern both for Public Health and for the community at large. The Dust and Particulate Matter Working Group, a sub-committee of Clean Air Hamilton, has undertaken a number of initiatives over the last few years to attempt to address these issues. The latest, a pair of handbooks on managing dust and particulate matter emissions for construction and demolition projects, has been completed!
The first handbook is directed towards contractors and is a comprehensive document describing many technical mitigation measures commonly applied on construction and demolition sites. You can view it here:
The second is a smaller document meant for homeowners engaged in DIY construction or demolition projects, and contains user-friendly directions on how to control emissions for the health of the homeowners and their neighbours. View it here:
These documents are available for the public to access free of cost, and will continue to be housed on the Clean Air Hamilton website here.
Any questions/concerns about the dust handbooks can be directed to the Air Quality & Climate Change Coordinator (email@example.com).
