The County is looking to attract a diverse range of dedicated community volunteers to serve on the newly formed Climate Action Plan Working Group.
The municipality is seeking up to four members of the public to serve on the working group.
The County in 2021 joined the Partners for Climate Protection (PCP) program. The PCP program is a national network of over 400 municipalities with the shared goal of taking action against climate change and reducing local greenhouse gas emissions.
As a member of the PCP program, the County is committed to meeting several milestones over the next 10 years. The Climate Action Plan Working Group will support the Environmental Advisory Committee and the Corporate Green Task Force in the development of the community focused initiatives of the PCP program and will work concurrently with staff on the five milestones.
To be eligible to serve on the Climate Action Plan Working Group, applicants must be a Canadian citizen, or permanent resident, property owner, or business owner in Prince Edward County that is 16 years of age or older.
Interested candidates are asked to complete the Climate Action Plan Working Group application form available on the County’s website.
The deadline to apply to the Climate Action Plan Working Group is 11:59 pm on Monday, December 4, 2023.
A working group is an assembly of interested people, led by a chair, working together to determine the best strategic ways to impact a specified subject, as determined by the Terms of Reference.
