GreenUP asked local Peterborough, ON visionaries to share their environmental hopes for the new year, and here’s what Green Communities Canada Executive Director Brianna Salmon had to say:

My green wish for 2022 is that communities across the country come together to rebuild from the COVID-19 pandemic, drawing upon the lessons we’ve learned about the power of collective action, the need to prioritize those who are most vulnerable, and the importance of investing in locally.

In 2022, I hope we meet this challenge with solutions that are creative, inclusive, and lasting.
