As of June 2021, the Brampton Environmental Alliance (BEA) is the new not-for-profit organization replacing the City of Brampton’s Grow Green Network. Being independent from the City of Brampton gives us the freedom to advocate for important environmental issues while still maintaining a positive and constructive relationship with Brampton City staff and Council.
The BEA is a Brampton wide network of organizations, community groups and individuals that envision Brampton growing as a sustainable community, one that is healthy and resilient environmentally, socially and economically.
The BEA believes in and supports the ONE PLANET framework, ten simple principles that cover all aspects of social environmental and economic sustainability.
The BEA is action and results oriented, by setting aggressive yet achievable goals. Focus is key to generating results, which is why for the balance of this year and 2022, the focus is primarily on three One Planet principles: Land and Nature, Culture and Community, Travel and Transport.
Alliance members work to support member organizations in their work and to catalyze collaboration and community advocacy on the most pressing environmentally focused community issues as selected by the group.
- The Alliance helps organizations access funding
- The Alliance strives to provide a one-stop portal for residents, businesses, and employees to be informed of and become involved with environmental issues that affect our City
- The Alliance helps coordinate and amplify community advocacy campaigns and environmental initiatives under the three One Planet principles
BEA meetings are held every other month, and replace Grow Green Network meetings. Sub-committees meet more informally and as often as is deemed necessary.
