    Ecology Ottawa is part of the 1 Million Tree initiative in Ottawa, through which we will be giving away trees to help the Capital recover from the Emerald Ash Borer infestation. By doing this, Ecology Ottawa is part of the largest tree giveaway in Ottawa’s history!

Living City

The Living City will integrate nature into the very fabric of urban planning, defend trees, plants, animals, rivers and greenspace and solve challenges by working with – not against – nature.

Active City

The Active City will build safe streets for all users, ages and abilities; focus on moving people, not just cars, and connect communities with world class transportation.

Renewable City

The Renewable City knows that 100% renewable energy is 100% possible; says “no” to new fossil fuel infrastructure, and creates clean energy jobs.
