A JUST TRANSITION IS POSSIBLE

Let's make it so!

On March 12, 2022, communities across Canada came together to share a vision of a Just Transition to a green society.

For pictures and more information on a Just Transition, visit:

AND the work is not done! Two days before the event (activism works!), the federal government announced the next round of consultations on what needs to be done. Weigh in here:

And once you've done that,

spin the wheel below to find other ways to take action.

TAKE A SELFIE!

Here is a list of principles of a just transition, with some ways they will manifest.

  • Pick one that speaks to you (and suggest more on the list!)

  • Dress up if you are brave, or hold a sign, and take a selfie. 

  • Make it your own, add some hashtags, and post on social media, tagging your MP and Justin Trudeau. 

Here's some potential text, but make it yours!

@so-and-so, a just transition away from fossil fuels will mitigate the worst of the climate crisis, and improve the quality of life for your constituents and all who share this planet.  Act now - take action on implementing a Ministry of Just Transition.
