Clean Climate Communities resource library
Clean Foundation is working with rural municipalities, the Federation of Canadian Municipalities, and the Nova Scotia Department of Energy and Mines to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and take action on climate change.
Through the project we offered Webinars and created Tools, Guides, and Training Videos. These resources – as well as strategic links and select tools from the Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM) – are available here for all communities, as we work to better understand our shared context and develop concrete strategies to overcome climate action barriers.
We also created a Climate Communications Knowledge Base to help municipalities with resources and guidance on communicating clean climate action.

Climate Communications Knowledge Base
Communicating about climate change – and the need for action – can be a challenge, especially if you are a local government with limited resources. We have created a supplementary communications-focused knowledge base for rural municipalities, to help them find resources and guidance on communicating clean climate action to their planning teams, councilors, colleagues, and constituents.
