(RECORDING) Communities, Not Corporations: Transition for People and the Planet

Join the Council of Canadians for a webinar series on combatting false solutions to climate change beginning on May 24, 2023.

In the context of the federal government’s impending Sustainable Jobs legislation, we’ll be featuring renowned speakers and experts who will share their insights on how to build community-based and worker approved solutions that are underpinned by good regulations, instead of relying on market-based approaches that only benefit big corporations. We’ll also be featuring workers from communities across the country who are imagining what their sector could look like in the process of a just transition.

NATIONAL WEBINAR: “Communities, Not Corporations: Transition for People and the Planet”

Canada’s transition away from fossil fuels needs to be a process that benefits workers, communities, and the climate. While the “Interim Sustainable Jobs Plan” is a step in the right direction, there are also notable absences and loopholes that will solely benefit fossil fuel companies and the ultra wealthy.

Join the Council of Canadians, Iron & Earth, BlueGreen Canada, 350 Canada and others for “Communities, Not Corporations: Transition for People and the Planet”. Hosted by Anjali Appadurai, renowned activists and experts will share insights on the federal Sustainable Jobs Plan and explore how to win strong legislation that invests in Indigenous sovereignty, workers, and communities rather than false, market-based solutions that line the pockets of corporations and the ultra-wealthy.
