All residents and living beings in Brampton rely on the interconnected system of natural and built environments. This is Brampton’s ecosystem.
The health, wealth, and wellbeing of the Brampton community depends on the natural systems, functions, and resources that are part of Brampton’s ecosystem. We rely on the natural environment and its processes to provide us with basic needs, such as air, water, food, and shelter, and many other benefits like recreation opportunities and protection from illness. In this way, the environment is our home.
Just like any home, our ecosystem requires the care, maintenance, and respect to ensure it provides us these services. It is our responsibility to take ownership and stewardship of our surroundings, including the natural environment, through our daily activities and life-long decisions.
