Green Neighbours Network is a grassroots community network of people and groups helping to make neighbourhoods across the City of Toronto and the GTA greener, healthier, and more sustainable.
We recognize the urgency for global climate action, and our personal roles in it. We support initiatives that promote a fair and just transition to a low carbon future.
We build relationships with our members by supporting, connecting and celebrating their work, both individually and through collaborative projects. We also seek alliances with other organizations merging environmental, economic and social benefits.
We aim for a fully sustainable city of diverse, walkable neighbourhoods enjoying equal access to abundant, ecologically-rich green spaces and the benefits of a vibrant, local, circular economy.
In addition to embracing the values of integrity, transparency and accountability, we place a special importance on “neighbourly” values – cooperation, respect for differences, friendliness and having fun together. Thus, we aim for a consensual approach to decision making.
