In the wake of the mini ice storm, which sparked much reflection and debate on the importance of building collective resilience to climate change, particularly for the most vulnerable populations, Transition en Commun members gathered for another day, this time hosted in the Hochelaga district.
Neighborhood tour – A look at Transition issues and initiatives in the area
Departing from the Marché Maisonneuve, we took a tour of the neighborhood, co-hosted by two committed citizens, in the form of a walk punctuated by several stops, short presentations by the MHM borough and neighborhood stakeholders. The tour highlighted a number of neighborhood realities related to the socio-ecological transition: residential/industrial cohabitation, citizen mobilization, land use planning, greening, mobility, adaptation, food security, public-community partnerships, territorial and socio-economic disparities, etc.
Many thanks to the many people who support the transition in Hochelaga on a daily basis and welcomed us to discover their neighborhood: Mobilisation Citoyenne 660 Parc Nature MHM, Arrondissement MHM, Sentiers Urbains, Bibliothèque Hochelaga, Chic Resto Pop, Pirate Vert, Locomotion, etc.
In the afternoon, the members of the Steering Committee met at Chic Resto Pop for the second meeting of 2023. A pivotal meeting in the evolution of the alliance, paving the way for the coming months, the meeting validated the constitution and mandates of several bodies, committees and working groups bringing together TeC members on priority themes. Stay tuned for announcements in the coming weeks.
Thanks to Chic Resto Pop and the MHM borough for their warm welcome!
A look back at the April 11 Steering Committee meeting, which this time took place in Hochelaga-Maisonneuve, where a guided tour provided an opportunity to immerse oneself in the reality of the neighborhood. The organization of the day was the result of the concerted involvement of the borough, community organizations and local citizens’ groups. A real success!
