Green Infrastructure Petition

Flooding and severe weather events are happening in Ottawa more frequently than in the past. It's more important than ever before that the City of Ottawa adapt to climate change by systematically scaling up the development of green infrastructure - living and built systems designed to slow down, soak up and filter rainwater. The City has the tools they need to do this, but the speed of climate change means we need to quickly move beyond pilot projects to widescale implementation.

We, the undersigned, call on the City of Ottawa to prioritize green infrastructure development so that we have a healthy, environmentally rich and climate-resilient city.

Les inondations et les phénomènes météorologiques violents à Ottawa sont plus fréquents aujourd’hui que dans le passé.  Il est plus important que jamais que la Ville d'Ottawa s'adapte au changement climatique en augmentant systématiquement le développement d’infrastructures vertes - des systèmes vivants et construits conçus pour ralentir, absorber et filtrer l’eau de pluie. La Ville possède les outils dont elle a besoin pour y accomplir, mais la rapidité du changement climatique signifie que nous devons rapidement passer au-delà des projets pilotes vers une mise en œuvre à grande échelle.

Nous, les soussignés, demandons à la Ville d'Ottawa de donner la priorité au développement d'infrastructures vertes afin que nous ayons une ville saine, écologiquement riche et résistante au climat.
