Museums of Mississauga and Parks, Forestry and Environment have teamed up to launch a new outdoor exhibit: We Are Resilient. The installation explores climate change and will travel across Mississauga throughout the next year.

Inspired by the City of Mississauga’s Climate Change Action Plan, the exhibit features photography and stories from Mississauga residents and includes perspectives from international leaders on the impacts of the changing climate. It explores how everyone can respond and recover together as a community.
