Story: Eagle Island’s Cool Neighbourhood

By January 1, 2013 No Comments

Eagle Island is a small-scale example of how leadership can result in action on climate change. Eagle Island is a community of 30 homes, located within the municipality of West Vancouver. Through holding local parties, obtaining some funding, and forming a partnership with local firefighters, Eagle Island resident Tarah Stafford was able to increase the energy efficiency of 26 homes on the Island. The success of Stafford’s initiative was picked up by the organization Cool North Shore and Stafford is now working with this group to carry out similar programs in other North Shore communities (notably Blueridge and Horseshoe Bay) using the name Cool Neighbourhoods.
