Hamilton, Ontario, is on the brink of a transformative journey, and we need your help to shape it!
Green Venture, in collaboration with Green Communities Canada, is thrilled to introduce the Living Cities program. This initiative aims to convert at least 250 square metres (about half the size of a professional basketball court) of urban spaces into lush, vibrant green areas that benefit both the environment and the community. We want you, the residents of Hamilton, to give input on which site to select. We’re inviting you to share your ideas for locations that could be transformed into greener spaces. Over the past decade, Green Venture has depaved over 1500 square metres through programs like Depave Paradise where concrete was removed and replaced by green spaces. This year alone we added more than 2400 native trees and plants to our community. Your voice matters, and together, we can create a more sustainable, greener Hamilton.
Why Your Input Matters
Transforming urban spaces into green havens is not just about planting trees and flowers. It’s about fostering a sense of community, improving air quality, supporting biodiversity, and enhancing the overall quality of life for Hamilton residents. By actively participating in the Living Cities program, you’re contributing to a greener, healthier, and more sustainable future for our city.
How You Can Contribute
We invite you to submit locations in Hamilton that you believe have the potential to be transformed into green spaces. Whether it’s a forgotten corner of your neighbourhood, a vacant lot, or an underutilized area in a park, we want to know about it. Your submissions will be the foundation upon which we build greener, more vibrant communities.
The Impact You Can Make
By participating in the Living Cities program, you’re not just suggesting locations; you’re actively contributing to the creation of greener, more sustainable communities in Hamilton. Your input will guide our efforts, ensuring that these transformed spaces align with the needs and desires of the residents who will benefit from them.
Hamilton, let’s come together and make our city greener, one space at a time. Your submissions for the Living Cities program will not only transform physical locations but will also cultivate a stronger sense of community and pride in our city. Together, we can create a legacy of sustainability and environmental stewardship for generations to come.
