Whistler is Making BIG MOVES for our Climate. When we act together, small steps become BIG MOVES
Whistler’s Climate Action BIG MOVES Strategy identifies the six most impactful action areas we need to focus on as a community to reduce emissions and make Whistler a more climate resilient community. We all have a role to play! The RMOW, in partnership with Whistler’s environmental charity AWARE, has created Small Steps for BIG MOVES: 12 months of climate actions we can each take to support Whistler’s six BIG MOVES.

Taking simple steps to reduce personal water use will help ensure we have water reserves for crucial services such as fire fighting.
Whether installing flow efficient fixtures or planning the next landscaping project using drought tolerant species, conserving and preserving Whistler’s most valuable natural resource is vital to preserving the way of life we love in the mountains.
