Hamilton 350 Committee

Hamilton 350 is building an engaged local movement for urgent action and advocacy on the climate crisis we're all facing

Municipal Election

24 October 2022

With the provincial election having come and gone, we’re mobilizing for October’s municipal election. We have the opportunity to elect a number of progressive, environmentally friendly councillors in an attempt to stem at a local level some of the damage that will be inflicted on the environment by the Ford government.

76 days to go!

Visit the City of Hamilton website for a list of nominated candidates.

Visit ielect Hamilton for candidate profiles.

26 Jul 2022: Andrea Horwath has announced that she will be running for Mayor of Hamilton in October.

Sarah Jama has announced that she is seeking the NDP nomination to replace her as MPP for Hamilton Centre.

18 Jul 2022: In a chilling article (pun not intended) in The Guardian, George Monbiot makes the case that incrementalism is no longer enough. We need wholesale system change. Join us in attempting to change the system in Hamilton!

15 Jun: Local activist Craig Cassar has announced that he will be running in Ward 12 (Ancaster). Watch Craig’s interview with Laura Babcock on The OShow.

New & Noteworthy

26 Jul 2022: A major new initiative has been announced by an international youth coalition to “revive the youth movement, create new alliances, radicalize, engage the whole of society to support and occupy, and envision the world we want – where life and not profit is at the center….” Events are planned between September and December 2022.

24 Jul 2022: John Harris cites Canadian band Weather Station in an opinion piece calling for more disruptive action on the environment.

Hamilton 350 depends on the efforts of volunteers

We urgently need systemic change to address and minimize the effects of the climate crisis being felt all over the world. While we can’t solve the world’s problems, we can do what we can to address the situation in our own backyard.

To do that, we need you and your energy, whether it’s for ongoing work in our sub-groups (see below) or for one-off actions and events.

If you don’t have spare time on your hands but can afford to make a GoFundMe donation to help further our work:

There are costs associated with organizing and holding events, getting the word out, providing honoraria for speakers and performers, hosting this website, and much more.

We acknowledge that we are on the traditional lands of the Erie, Neutral, Huron-Wendat, Haudenosaunee, and Mississauga peoples, which are governed by the Dish With One Spoon Wampum Agreement and are covered by the Great Lakes Purchase of 1792.
