Our increased use of fossil fuel energy is unsustainable, and burning these fuels produces greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions that impact global warming.

Protecting our environment is about expanding our knowledge, making changes in how we live and sometimes learning to adapt to changes that have already taken place. Learn more about our environmental strategy, The Way We Green, and what steps we can all take and what resources are available.

Edmonton to host first ever international conference on cities and climate change

Edmonton has been chosen to host the inaugural Cities and Climate Change Science Conference March 5-7, 2018.

The conference is co-sponsored by the Cities IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change), part of the UN Environmental Program (UNEPO) and the World Meteorological Organization (WMO).

The conference will welcome up to 1000 municipal representatives, scientists and academics from around the world to share the latest scientific research on climate change, and will inspire global and regional action within cities to address this complex issue.

The idea for a conference focusing on cities and climate change was born at COP22 (United Nations Climate Change Conference), which was attended by Mayor Don Iveson in 2016.
