Are you eager to talk to like minded people about grassroots ground up action on climate change?
Tired of the political system failing you repeatedly on climate change?
Done with Canada’s intransigence on climate change?
Upset with having your voice ignored while the voices of polluters destroying our planet get magnified?
Had it with yet another round of Climate Talks, this time in Cancun, lots of talk, hot air and no action?
Do you reduce, reuse, recycle; ride the bus; ride your bike? Do you consider yourself part of the solution? Where do you think you can contribute next?
1. World leaders meet in Cancun as we speak.
Very little is expected to come out of all this talk. Why?
2. What can you do if your government stands in the way of climate change policies, and actively lobbies on the behalf of oil companies?
Climate justice and economic concepts
1. What is the connection between climate change and social justice?
2. Our economic well being is portrayed as being tied to constant GDP growth. Yet Canadians have already exceeded the Earth’s carrying capacity, what can be done?
False Solutions and Real Solutions
1. Is “greening the economy” sufficient? What more do we need to do locally?.
2. Do you believe that technology will rescue us?
3. Can you think of living in a post-oil world? What would it look like?
Wrap up – Moderators will present a summary of discussions.
Coffee and tea will be provided.
