One Day Leadership Council Backgrounder

One Day is about leadership. Vancouver can be a model for how urban populations use and consume energy.  Vancouver will host the world at the 2006 World Urban Forum and the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games.  Together we can achieve our vision of being the cleanest, greenest, healthiest city in the world.

The City of Vancouver and One Day are committed to acting as connector, catalyst and resource to community partners who are already leading the way by providing programs and taking action to reduce energy consumption in the City. Rather than duplicating existing programs, One Day is working with companies, NGOs and other levels of government to support their programs and make them go further.

Part of this work is the establishment of a Mayor’s Climate Leadership Council. Community leaders including Vancity, Citizen’s Bank, YWCA Vancouver, Norske Canada, UBC, Novex Couriers, Mountain Equipment Co-op and others are committing their organizations to spreading the One Day message and the need for leadership and action to their employees, customers and suppliers.

One Day is about developing new, innovative ways of connecting with Vancouver residents. Throughout the summer of 2005, community partners, youth and small business owners built the One Day movement from the ground up, seeding the idea in Vancouver’s restaurants, coffee shops, yoga studios, bike shops and more. The Mayor’s Climate Change Leadership Council is harnessing the momentum of this leadership and spreading the One Day message to even more members of the community.

One Day is about taking small, simple steps to change the way that we consume energy in our homes and on the road, to preserve the Vancouver residents value so much, while limiting the harmful impacts of climate change.

For more information on One Day, please contact Thomas Osdoba, Manager, Sustainability Program, City of Vancouver, 604-871-6677.
