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 that each of us can take to support Whistler’s six BIG MOVES.
TAKE ACTION! This November, let’s:
Ride The Bus
Hopping on public transport accelerates success on BIG MOVE #1: Move beyond the car.
As temperatures drop in autumn, the number of great reasons to ride the bus just increases. If changing weather makes cycling and walking less appealing, Whistler’s public transit offers a reliable, affordable, accessible alternative to the car.
This is good news for those of us who want to make an impact, because 67 per cent of Whistler residents still make most of their trips to work in cars. In fact, switching to riding the bus will make a direct impact to reduce Whistler’s largest source of GHG emissions, personal vehicles.
