Introducing the People Power Challenge On Demand!




“This year’s People Power Challenge has encouraged our team to think about sustainability while they are at home. The Challenge has been a great way for individuals to get their children involved in thinking about sustainable actions, and the educational webinars have provided our team with information and actions that they can commit to both at home and at work.”Diana Aldaz | Events & Sustainability Outreach Coordinator | University of Toronto Mississauga

“2020 has been a difficult year filled with many changes and challenges. The Partners in Project Green team took on that challenge and adapted their turn-key sustainable employee engagement program — People Power Challenge — to include both at home and at work actions for employees to participate in. This in turn became a great tool for the City of Mississauga to use to continue engaging our staff and our Green Leaders in taking sustainable action at home or at work. We look forward to the 2021 People Power Challenge!”Heliya Babazadeh-Oleghi | Environmental Outreach Coordinator | City of Mississauga
