You can do a lot in One Day

This is a great campaign which shows the spirit of conscious living in Vancouver. Get on board.



One Day is about taking small steps to make Vancouver the cleanest, greenest, healthiest city in the world. It's about creating a movement to reduce energy consumption in our homes and on the road to preserve the Vancouver residents value so much, while limiting the harmful impacts of climate change.

•  One Day is about individual actions that each of us can take and control in our every day lives. It's about what is possible, and will reward and applaud each and every action, no matter how big or how small. It's about momentum and shared success.

•  One Day is about values - about protecting the beautiful place we live in and preserving quality of life for our children and grandchildren.   It's about shared effort and working together.

•  One Day is about health, fitness and wellbeing. Walking and cycling are easy ways to stay fit and help reduce the amount of energy we use. Changing the way we move through our day also helps us slow down and take more time with our children, neighbourhoods and communities, reminding us that life doesn't have to be quite as hectic.

•  One Day is about leadership. Vancouver can be a model for how urban populations use and consume energy.   Vancouver will host the world at the 2006 World Urban Forum and the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Games.   Together we can achieve our vision of being the cleanest, greenest, healthiest city in the world.

And nobody knows about One Day - yet. Over the summer, One Day will be out in the community, creating a sense of mystery and wonder, encouraging a "What's that?" response among residents.

One Day is working with partners - youth, community groups, business leaders - to start this movement from the ground up, seeding the idea in workplaces, businesses, neighbourhoods, coffee shops and more.

Come September, with roots planted in the community, One Day will kick into high gear, using community leadership and support to bring the City of Vancouver's Community Climate Change Action Plan to life in the months and years ahead.


One day. One street.
One really fun festival.
