How about 36 million people?
-- each in their own way, and for their own reasons.
Climate Action Canada helps people act on climate change -- in their homes and communities.
Can we make a difference?
Believe it. Climate action can help us save money and live better at the same time as we lower our energy use.
We can use climate action as the opportunity to create the future we want.
So how can we organize 36 million people?
Actually, it's not that hard. Here's three ways we can help organize Canada for climate action:
- Government Support: Government climate plans should include investments in climate infrastructure, public incentives, and funding for public engagement and support.
- Community Action: Organize Cool Communities. Organize a community network, draft a local climate action plan, help people find solutions that meet their needs, and take on projects that will benefit the community.
- Climate Campaigns: Collaborate on signature campaigns to promote climate action and climate solutions.
See the links above, or read the whole plan: "Engage! How to put Canadians into Canada's Climate Plans".
How are we doing?
Not so good.
But it is still early days and there is positive momentum.
Here's where we stand:
Sr. Government Engagement Plans (out of 14)
Municipal Engagement Plans ( out of 3,000+)
Organized Communities (out of 5,000+)
Collaborative Climate Campaigns
