Community Champion Program

Objectives and Description:

This Program brings together residents and staff in planning and promoting activities that engage the community as a whole in sustainable behaviour and choices. By promoting energy-efficiency, waste reduction and water conservation, Community Champions help their communities adopt habits that save money and resources, and also improve comfort, reduce waste and help build their community.

Community Champions are provided with two days of training which highlights the various ways in which resources such as energy are used and wasted in residential buildings, and identifies some easy, low/no-cost ways to become more efficient. Training also allows participants to learn how to develop communication materials, create program plans and reports, and coordinate outreach activities. Community Champions then take the skills and materials they have acquired through training and apply what they have learned to their own communities to promote participation in conservation activities.
