The midterm elections in the United States brought a new kind of politician to Washington. Young people from all walks of life who are determined to use the transition to clean energy as a means to secure a better life for all.
They’re calling it the Green New Deal.
What does this emerging movement look like north of the border, and how can we tap it to get politicians onside as champions for more ambitious climate action? How is job security a central piece of this puzzle? In this episode we explore this movement for a just transition and what it could mean for you.
We interview Cree activist, writer and 350.org campaigner Clayton Thomas-Müller and Vancouver-based organizer Nayeli Jimenez about the campaign for a Green New Deal for Canada.
