Climate change is a big problem that demands big solutions. Individual actions, such as changing light bulbs or cycling to work, are important, but as individual citizens, we lack many of the tools needed to solve the climate crisis. That’s why collective action and strong government leadership is critical.
Pricing carbon pollution, increasing energy efficiency, investing in modern public transit, building renewable energy and regulating industrial emissions are all needed in order to fight climate change.
1. Building a movement:
We’re building a movement of engaged citizens calling for meaningful climate leadership from government. If Canadians want our government to lead, we must demand it and recognize leadership where and when it exists.
2. Generating new ideas:
We research and generate new ideas that can help to solve the climate crisis. Governments and Canadians need to know about the solutions available to us as we tackle carbon pollution.
3. Working with government:
We work with governments of all stripes to make positive changes, such as strengthening regulations or laws, developing cleaner energy industries and making the transition towards vehicles and homes that don’t rely on fossil fuels.
