THE PROBLEM

Solutions to climate change must also build a fairer society that leaves no one behind. Alternative energy and transportation models that further consolidate power in the hands of rich corporations or increase income inequality will merely kick our social and ecological crises down the road

The Solution

To build a society that is free from carbon pollution and will be resilient as we increasingly feel the impacts of climate changes, we must involve local communities, workers and Indigenous Peoples right from the start. In Canada, that means the opportunity for meaningful careers, ongoing support for communities transitioning away from fossil fuel extraction, and the full implementation of the UN Declaration on the Rights of Idigenous Peoples. It also means not letting oil companies dictate environmental policy.
