Climate Emergency Unit
Canadian author Seth Klein’s new book explores how we can align our politics and economy with what the science says we must do to address the climate crisis. Learning from the past, Seth investigates the way that Canada quickly–and radically–retooled its economy for the Second World War. Just as we have seen governments respond to the COVID-19 pandemic with speed and efficiency previously unimaginable, so too can we respond to the climate emergency.

Tell Premier Horgan: Let’s Build Back a Better BC!
Right now, we have the chance to build back a better BC — one that centres a liveable climate, healthy ecosystems, economic and racial justice, and community wellbeing.
As the BC government ponders its options for economic stimulus in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, we can stand together to demand that the government build back better. This means building a more just, equitable BC that is resilient in the face of the climate crisis.
Take action for a better future that puts communities and nature first.
