HalifACT2050

HalifACT 2050: Acting on Climate Together is a long-term climate change plan to reduce emissions and help our communities adapt. The plan will guide efforts to reduce emissions by conserving energy and converting to clean energy sources. The plan will also help communities adapt by raising awareness and helping people prepare.

The Halifax Regional Municipality will continue to help people address climate change with our award-winning Solar City Program. We will continue to plan development and support our builders with a changing climate in mind. However, there is more work to do – HalifACT 2050 is about what we do together to address climate change over the next 30 years.

The HalifACT 2050 team will be hosting a number of pop-ups over the summer. Staff will be on hand to answer your questions about our progress in the development of a long-term climate action plan, and we invite you to place a pin on our hazards map and take our climate action survey. If you're not able to join us in person, you can participate online.

By working together, we can shape the future of Halifax for generations to come.

SAVE money: reduce your energy consumption

CUT emissions: consider transportation alternatives

PREVENT loss: be prepared for climate-related emergencies

STRENGTHEN communities: become more informed and involved

HalifACT 2050 Climate Action Survey: Adaptation

Tell us which adaptation priorities are most important to you when it comes to climate change. How do you think the municipality should weigh different social, economic and environment concerns as we respond to climate change?

Your responses will help inform the adaptation priorities and strategies in our climate action plan.

Adaptation refers to measures to prepare ourselves and our communities for changes in our climate by taking steps that will help us cope with the likely impacts.

  • HalifACT 2050 Climate Action Survey: Mitigation

    Tell us which of these climate action categories is most important to you when it comes to climate change, and how likely you are to act. We also want to understand what's holding you back when it comes to making changes. 

    Your responses will help inform the mitigation strategies in our climate action plan.

    Mitigation refers to strategies or measures that reduce the causes of climate change primarily through the reduction of Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions.
