Building a Future Beyond Fossil Fuels: organizing for a just transition in Manitoba

Laura Cameron | Nov 8 | 1 hour | 6.30pm | free


Addressing climate change requires that we move quickly away from fossil fuels—a transition that will impact every facet of our society. How do we ensure that this transition leads to a more safe, equitable energy future for all? Across Canada and around the world, momentum is building for a ‘just transition’ to renewable energy and a fair society. This workshop will look at the history and current organizing for a just transition, discuss the current political context and opportunities of the movement, and facilitate a conversation on ways to participate in advocacy at various levels of government.
