More details

"This is a once in a generation opportunity. If we all stand together, we can push the government towards a bold climate strategy that’s justice-based, respects the UN Declaration on the rights of Indigenous peoples, aligns with climate science, and commits Canada to a 100% renewable energy economy."

Teach-In Featuring :
Myeengun Henry - Chippewas of the Thames 
Avi Lewis - Leap Manifesto
Megan Whitfield, CUPW Toronto- Delivering Community Power 
Adam Scott- Oil Change International 
Gabriel Allahdua - Justicia for Migrant Workers

Join the People’s Climate Plan (a broad-based collective of climate justice groups) at this teach-in to build strong community pressure for a meaningful and just national climate plan. 

Plenary discussion, followed by three workshops- each on a key pillar of the People's Climate Plan

The teach-in will prepare people to attend upcoming "climate consultations" hosted by local MP's, to promote the three pillars of the People's Climate Plan. 

• A national climate plan that aligns with the science of climate change and ensures Canada meets its commitments to a 1.5°C world by keeping its fossil fuels reserves in the ground.

• A national plan that builds a 100% renewable energy economy by 2050, creating over a million clean, safe and rewarding jobs.

• A national plan that enshrines justice & reconciliation for Indigenous peoples, ensures no worker is left behind in the transition to a clean energy economy, and takes leadership from those hit hardest by the climate crisis.
