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.
TAKE ACTION! This June, let’s:
Embrace the Valley Trail
Simple steps (literally) are the key to gaining momentum on BIG MOVE #1: Move beyond the car.
Milder weather and clear sunny skies bring more opportunities to savour our time outdoors. Getting out of our cars and moving our bodies to get to our destination is one of the best ways to embrace the changing seasons and a great action we can take to reduce emissions.
With emissions from private passenger vehicle trips within Whistler making up 54% of Whistler’s emissions, a key to reducing Whistler’s carbon footprint lies in embracing active mobility. Whether we walk, bike, skate, ski, roll or use the bus, Whistler’s Valley Trail offers great options for connecting routes as we move around the valley for work or play.
