About

The Green Resilience Project explores and acts on links between climate change, income security and resilience in communities across Canada.

Phase One of the Green Resilience Project took place between March 2021 – April 2022. It was managed and delivered by Energy Mix Productions, Basic Income Canada Network, Coalition Canada basic income – revenu de base, and Basic Income Canada Youth Network. It was funded in part by Environment and Climate Change Canada’s Climate Action and Awareness Fund.

Working with a designated partner organizations in 33 communities across Canada, we aimed to create conversation 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 changeWe are grateful to our incredible partners who designed and delivered the project to best suit the needs of their community.

These conversations generated 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. 

In April 2022, we created a final report that draws on local community reports to connect the dots between community resilience, income security and low-carbon economies.

Current Work:

In 2023, we launched Phase Two of the Green Resilience Project and we are currently accepting new community partners. We are also managing Transportation Shift, a series of community conversations focused on transportation and Canada’s transition to zero emission vehicles.
