THE TIME IS NOW.

Canton Residents for a Sustainable, Equitable Future 

  • Facebook

Canton Residents for a Sustainable, Equitable  Future (CR4SEF) - or "Sustainable Canton," is a welcoming group determined to halt the rapidly evolving climate crisis and mitigate its effects by promoting public engagement through education and thoughtful action.

We stand in support of frontline communities and those most heavily impacted by climate change. We seek collaboration with local, state, and national efforts to rapidly transition to a renewable, resilient and equitable society and economy that protects a livable environment.

Canton residents of all ages are encouraged to "act locally," to help halt the climate crisis. We have an array of projects at any given time.
