SACKVILLE, NB: On January 17, Aster Group hosted a community conversation on the links between climate change, income security and community resilience in New Brunswick’s Tantramar region.
Organized in partnership with the Green Resilience Project, the conversation aimed to identify and document a wide range of perspectives on what community members need to build resilience and encourage local action on all the aspects of the climate crisis.
Climate change and income insecurity are two of the most urgent challenges facing Tantramar residents. The conversation brought community members together to discuss the connections between these issues, brainstorm solutions and identify what they need to be put into action.
Details from the conversation will be shared in the Green Resilience Project’s final report, to be published in April 2022.
The Green Resilience Project is managed and delivered by Energy Mix Productions, Basic Income Canada Network, Coalition Canada Basic Income – Revenu de base, Basic Income Canada Youth Network, national experts and local partners. Funding is generously provided by Environment and Climate Change Canada’s Climate Action and Awareness Fund.
Aster Group is a worker co-operative that services communities and businesses in areas of environmental, social and economic sustainability, with particular expertise in climate change planning and education. A portion of Aster revenues support its charity, the Aster Foundation, that awards environmental non-profit groups funding independent of government priorities.
