Canvassing for Change

Feb 24 2019 - 9:30am to 5:00pm

Campaigns are won on the ground – at the doorstep and on the phone. Paid ads and social media posts can be part of an effective election campaign, and no one ever won a contested campaign without talking directly to voters.

Canvassing for Change applies principles of community organizing to build large volunteer canvassing teams. Building off of best practices from the last 10 years of US Democrat campaigns, and field-tested and refined by progressives in Canada, Canvassing for Change teaches the practical and hands on skills needed to win.

Webinar: Climate Accountability in Canada

Nov 22 2018 - 12:00pm to 1:00pm

In this webinar, we will dig into some of the ambition-raising asks we’ll be making of the Canadian government as we head into COP24. Our panelists will discuss what an accountability mechanism for the Pan-Canadian Framework on Clean Growth and Climate Change might look like and how it can ensure ambition can be raised in the future. We will also explore some of the ways accountability mechanisms have been embedded in climate policy around the world.

Ecological Grief

Nov 22 2018 - 6:00pm to 9:00pm

Grieving the loss or change of a cherished natural space has not always been recognized as a true form of grieving. With wildfires and summers filled with smoke, devastating flooding, subtle changes in the seasons, and the recent IPCC report, ecological grief is now starting to become recognized as a legitimate form of mourning and anxiety. But like all forms of grief, ecological grief is personal, unique, and doesn't often follow a logical pattern. Join us for a discussion around the ways we may grieve a landscape similarly (and differently) to other forms of loss. Read more about Ecological Grief
