As human beings we are an inseparable part of the natural world.
Our existence depends on a good relationship with our non-human relatives. Unfortunately, the current model of forestry practiced in this province breaks the relationships between ourselves and nature. In British Columbia, forests are being logged at an unsustainable rate, leading to loss of biodiversity, increased carbon emissions, and human rights conflicts. Many of us are asking ourselves, “how can I make a difference?”
This guide will help you answer that question.
Your voice is important.
You are uniquely positioned to make a difference because you have local knowledge and connections in your community. You have already identified a problem, whether it’s a planned logging block, a climate impact caused by unsustainable logging, or something else altogether. Sierra Club BC has created this web page as a guide to help you with your project.
In this guide, you will find information and opportunities to learn about how to see and do things differently. We invite you to explore the different sections down below.
