The impacts of climate change (such as more frequent and severe floods and droughts) will not impact all communities and residents equally. Understanding climate change impacts, opportunities, and solutions at a neighbourhood scale allows action and planning unique to the needs of each neighbourhood. The needs of urbanizing rural communities, like the Hamlet of Warsaw, vary greatly. Like other SUN neighbourhoods, Warsaw requires its own unique action plan. In 2019, thanks to funding from the RBC Foundation, GreenUP launched its SUN program in the Hamlet of Warsaw.

Located along the Indian River within the Township of Douro-Dummer, the SUN Warsaw program focuses on sustainable action with the goals of:

  • Improving water quality
  • Protecting and re-mediating Indian River
  • Increasing knowledge and awareness of water within the community

SUN Warsaw will be the first rural community to pilot the model and will be a prime example of how a rural community can advance sustainable renewal and climate action.

GreenUP’s Sustainable Urban Neighbourhoods (SUN) program is a collaborative, neighbourhood-based solution for advancing sustainable renewal and climate action. SUN joins neighbourhood residents, municipalities, and other community partners to identify and support opportunities for sustainability through immediate, demonstrative impacts, visioning and planning for future action, and the sharing of skills and knowledge.
