South Huron launching video series with practical information about our changing climate


Rising to the Challenge South Huron's Climate Change Video SeriesThe Municipality of South Huron is inviting the community to enjoy a free, monthly online video series that offers practical ways to mitigate and adapt to our changing climate hosted by South Huron’s Climate Change Adaptation Advisory Committee. The video series is titled Rising to the Challenge and features both local and national experts.

“In recent years, South Huron and our neighbouring municipalities have seen the impacts of extreme weather events and a changing climate and the cost it has on our entire community. Ignoring these risks is not an option. The video series is a great way for local people to learn about how to adapt and join the Municipality in  positioning our community for future success,” said Mayor George Finch.

The monthly video series kicks off on June 17, 2021, with the first video released providing background and context for the series.

Public outreach through a community forum platform is one recommendation of the Municipality’s Climate Change Adaptation Strategy. During the current coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the online video series provides a way for the public to find out about climate change adaptation efforts and to become part of it while being safe at home. The presentations will be released and be available for viewing on the Municipality’s YouTube Channel.

Each video will contain practical information on various themes that are relevant to our community, including: agricultural practices, energy efficiency, flood protection, green infrastructure/low impact development, stewardship, tree planting and grants, waste reduction and water and wastewater. Full details on the schedule of video releases is available on South Huron's Climate Change Video Series webpage. 

Do you have specific question you would like answered about the theme areas as it relates to climate change adaptation or mitigation? Submit your questions to the Committee by completing the question form or contacting Stacey Jeffery by email at or by phone 519-235-0310 extension 247.

In 2020, the Municipality of South Huron developed South Huron’s Climate Change Adaptation Strategy with financial support provided by the Government of Canada through the Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM) Municipalities for Climate Innovation Program (MCIP). South Huron Council adopted the strategy on September 8, 2020.

South Huron is one of the only municipalities, of its size, in Canada, to have completed a climate change adaptation strategy of this scope.

The strategy has a vision of “A future-ready South Huron that is resilient to the impacts of a changing climate.” The strategy is comprised of eight goals to help achieve the vision.  This video series is an action item under Goal 2: Support municipal and community resilience awareness and action.
