Environmental Advisory Committees Seeking New Members

London's environment needs you. If you are interested in making London a better place in the areas of environment, natural areas and trees,  there is a great opportunity for you right now at City Hall. Applications close November 13th so read on!

Three Advisory Committees deal with related areas of keeping London’s environment healthy and green:

Advisory Committees report directly to a committee of council (e.g. Trees and Forest Advisory Committee reports to the Planning and Environment Committee of Council ). They make policy recommendations and also provide comment on projects and plans undertaken by the City. Serving on a committee is one of the best ways to advocate for better environmental policies in London.

ReForest London has served on the Trees and Forest Committee since its inception. This committee has other seats available for members of the public with an interest in trees.  These committees have great potential to initiate and support change but that potential depends on the advocacy and work of committee members.  

ReForest London encourages tree lovers to apply to this committee or others to bring new energy to the table.

You can find a fuller description of these three environmental-related committees (and 11 others) on the City website.  Online applications are due by November 13th.

Appointments are made by Council on the recommendation of a volunteer citizen-based Striking Committee (which is already in place).  The number of positions to be appointed for each committee is here.

At ReForest London, we can answer any questions you might have on the three environmental-related committees so feel free to call us at 519-936-9548 x223.  Inquiries on all vacancies can be handled by City of London, City Clerk’s office, Heather Woolsey  519-661-2500 Ext. 4599.

Advisory Committees are a unique opportunity to influence our local environment and to learn a lot about getting things done at City Hall.  Don’t be shy! London is what we make it.
