What is the Step to It Program?

The Step to It program focuses on raising awareness and inspiring action on climate issues in the Fraser Valley.

While climate change is a global issue, the actions we take here at home support healthy ecosystems locally and globally.

We believe that everyone can have an impact in curbing climate change and some of the best tools we have are those provided by nature.

 

We are excited to continue to develop this new FVC program. Stay tuned for more climate change content and resources coming soon.

How Can I Participate in the Step to It Program?

There are many ways you can participate in curbing climate change. At the FVC we are bringing attention to the nature-based solutions you can implement in your neighbourhood to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, build resilient local ecosystems, and store carbon.

Plant trees and shrubs

Trees and shrubs pull carbon from the atmosphere and store it away. Consider using native plants to reduce carbon and create healthy habitats.

Use green alternatives

Tools such as rain barrels, solar panels, and electric vehicles change how we use the finite resources of the earth.
