Join CHF BC’s Climate Emergency Task Force

  14 November 2022

CHF BC’s Climate Emergency Task Force is looking for new committee members!

Heat domes, blizzards, forest fires, floods, and drought – our changing climate impacts us and the environment. We need to find ways to make co-ops resilient in the face of climate change. Housing co-ops can play a part.

We know living in a co-op is one of the best forms of housing for social and economic sustainability. Let’s make them climate resilient, too. The goal of the Climate Emergency Task Force is to find tangible ways CHF BC members can lessen their carbon footprint, making housing co-ops more environmentally friendly.

The Task Force started in 2019, as a response to a resolution adopted by members at our Annual General Meeting. It develops reports, resources and guidelines on how housing co-op members can make their homes and broader communities more environmentally friendly and sustainable. CHF BC wants co-op members to be proud of the homes and communities they live in by appreciating and fostering a healthy and sustainable environment.

We’re looking for people who are keen to get involved and passionate about housing co-ops. . You don’t have to be experts about climate change to want to effect real change. Joining the CETF will help expand your skill set and introduce you to knowledgeable people to gather a better understanding of the climate emergency.

Climate change is a real and ever-increasing problem. By working together, we can do our part to ensure our housing co-op communities adapt and thrive.
