Transition Kamloops is a not-for-profit, volunteer-driven society focused on increasing local resilience and self-sufficiency in food, water, energy, culture and wellness.
The society is celebrating a climate action plan win. After criticism that the first draft of the Community Climate Action Plan was inadequate, the City of Kamloops came back with a more ambitious plan, but didn’t include funding to implement it. Transition Kamloops organized a letter-writing campaign and encouraged residents to attend budget meetings to ask councillors to support climate action funding. In the end, council approved long-term funding that ramps up every year. It’s great to see that grassroots advocacy can make a difference!
