The Green Resilience Project is organizing a series of virtual conversations with 25 to 35 communities across Canada to explore the links between climate change, income security and community resilience.
Working with a designated partner organization from each community, we hope to create spaces in which a wide range of participants can talk through the links between climate action, income security and their ability to create stronger, healthier communities equipped with the tools they need to respond to big changes like the ones brought on by climate change.
These conversations, or listening sessions, aim to get community perspectives on how programs like a basic income can ease uncertainty about the shift away from fossil fuels, and how clean energy alternatives can help build the community resilience that income security programs are meant to support and achieve.
At the end of the project, we’ll produce a final report which will be available to the public and shared with Environment and Climate Change Canada. Over the longer term, we hope this project will help build dialogue across climate and energy, income security and labour communities in Canada.
The Green Resilience project is scheduled to conclude by April 2022.
