"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has." - Margaret Mead.  

Citizens cannot rely on government alone to solve critically challenging issues. That’s why we’ve formed the Kingston Climate Hub: to provide non-partisan information on climate change, to engage with our community to take control of climate change in our own backyards, and to monitor government and industry actions and outcomes.
