The Paris Climate Summit is just a few days away, and we could be on the edge of a major tipping point for global climate action. It’s a moment of historic opportunity, and we have a rare chance to call for a plan that’s big enough to meet this inter-generational crisis, with a government that might listen. 

With the whole world paying attention to Canada’s new positions, and the federal and provincial governments coming together to create a new climate plan for Canada over the next few months, many groups are coming out in favour of a bold climate solution with growing global support: 100% clean and renewable energy by 2050.

To reach this goal we’re going to need to work together across the country with a plan to:

  1. Create hundreds of thousands of low-carbon jobs,
  2. Respect and promote Indigenous rights,
  3. Stop the expansion of fossil fuel infrastructure and,
  4. Do our part to stop a dangerous 2 degree rise in global temperature.

We can do it, but we need to work together.
