Town hall events will be happening across Canada over the course of the summer of 2016. It is extremely important that you show up and speak up and voice your support for a National Climate Change Strategy that:
- Builds up Canada’s renewable energy workforce capacity
- Promotes Canadian manufacturing of renewable energy technologies
- Positions existing energy sector workers, developers, contractors, and unions within renewable energy sector
Make sure to take notes and submit them so they can be included in the final Workers' Climate Plan report.
This map has been put together through the hard work of organizers at People's Climate Plan. They are doing a great job providing centralized resources about town hall events - something the Government of Canada has failed to do.
Iron & Earth shares much of its vision with the People's Climate Plan, but the two are not directly affiliated. Some of our worker members may have differing views from them and that's fine! Our focus is on making sure our members - workers most impacted by the shift away from fossil fuels - are part of a just transition to the renewable energy economy. Many of us rely on jobs in oil, gas and coal. We support renewable energies and as an organization led by oil and gas workers, feel a responsibility in addressing climate change.
