Canadian City Park Report

Advancing Climate Justice in Parks

Hosted: November 23, 2021

Urban green spaces help mitigate the impacts of climate change by reducing temperatures and lowering flood risk. However, unequal access to these spaces leaves many lower-income, racialized communities more vulnerable to the impacts of climate change. Addressing these inequities involves more equitable distribution of green space, but also changes in how we engage and involve communities in the design and planning of city parks.

Join experts from across the country to explore what environmental justice means for city parks, how the concept is being applied in Canada, and panellists’ views on how to advance an environmental justice agenda for more equitable and resilient public spaces.
