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

23 days to go!

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

Visit ielect Hamilton for candidate profiles.

It hardly needs repeating that the planet is in a deep crisis, with very little time left to stop us reaching a tipping point from which there is no return. We can’t solve the global problem but we can do our bit to ensure that Hamilton becomes a climate and social justice leader.

Hamilton has had a mixed bag of representation over the past few terms, but given that an unusually large number of incumbents are not running this time around, we have a unique opportunity to change this!

We’re working with the Hamilton Chapter of the Council of Canadians and other groups in an attempt to get the council we need and deserve. Click the following image to go to the Go Vote Hamilton website for more information.

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.

Anti-oppression

Focusing on solidarity and ethical practices

Conservation Matters

Responding to local attacks on the environment

Elders for Climate Sanity

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.
