Imagine a world where we no longer need to burn dirty fuels like coal or oil from the tar sands that cause global warming.
It would look a lot like the Living Planet City, where people's homes, workplaces and vehicles are powered by harnessing renewable energy from the sun, wind, water and earth. And it is possible now!
The Living Planet City is a virtual city, but real communities in Canada and around the world are already using similar systems. In these communities, citizens are gaining a whole new understanding of energy, and actively engaging in the fight against climate change. They are lowering greenhouse gas emissions and securing a local, renewable energy supply, all while reducing their energy bills and creating good, green jobs.
Please explore our city to get a sense of how we can get a whole lot smarter about where we get our energy from and how we put it to work in an urban environment. Then Take Action to make this a reality in your community.
