Why Climate Hubs? Community Climate Hubs lie at the confluence of civil society, business, government, and citizens. Political environments are difficult to transform as they rely heavily on diverse and broad-based support for decision-making. Citizens lacking peer-to-peer support are less likely to participate in their democracy. Hubs help provide support for citizens to collectively express their eagerness to transition to a more efficient, healthy and sustainable economy.

What is Climate Change Hub? The Climate Reality Project Canada (Climate Reality Canada) is a charity organization that serves as the Canadian component of a global movement of more than 21,000 diverse and dedicated volunteers, from 154 countries around the world. Local volunteers are needed to help educate the public about the science and impacts of climate change, as well as solutions to address the climate crisis. In April 2020 the EnviroCollective signed a national agreement to become the Regina Community Hub.
