Global Climate Strike - September 20-27

As world leaders prepare to gather in New York for the UN Climate Action Summit, millions of children and students across Canada and around the world will be hitting the streets again on Friday  to demand action on the climate crisis from all levels of government and society. They are calling on people of all ages to join them in a week of Global Climate Action from September 20–27.

Climate Strike groups across Canada are kicking off the week with a march and "die-in" protest on Friday, September 20:

The culmination of Global Climate Week will be another series of climate strikes across Canada on Friday, September 27. Swedish teenager Greta Thunberg, whose actions inspired the global Fridays for Future climate strike movement, will be marching with climate strikers in Montréal.

Check Global Climate Strike for a Climate Strike in your town or city. GoodWork has compiled a good list of Global Climate Strike links and resources.

In between, there are a myriad of climate events and actions planned, some of which are listed in the Upcoming Events section of this email. Check out the Edmonton Climate Strike page for a schedule of events in Edmonton. The Calgary Climate Hub has a list of happenings in Calgary. 

Green New Deal Town Hall

May 18 2019 - 1:30pm to 4:30pm

This event is one of many Green New Deal town halls being held in communities across the country in May 2019. The conversation is being led from the ground up through town halls bringing together people from all walks of life to discuss our vision for a new economy -- one that cuts global warming pollution, implements the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, creates millions of green jobs, and makes sure no one gets left behind.. The input from these town halls will be used to inform a vision for a Green New Deal for all.

Next Up Calgary is launching a new series of workshops on November 6, 7 & 10. They are replacing our 7 month long weekly leadership program.

We'll have deeper connections to communities, active facilitation and use this to support intentional solidarity with Calgary's progressive communities and leaders. Over the next 8 months we'll be holding 6 workshops, each will be a stand alone 3 day series, and all will have a specified theme. All the workshops are open to those between 18 and 32. 

Volunteer Opportunity: Youth Council, Alberta Environmental Network

Position: 
Youth Council Member
Application Deadline: 
23 Oct 2018

The Alberta Environmental Network (AEN) is creating a new Youth Council—an opportunity to influence the network of 40+ Alberta environmental groups. 

Please complete the application below by Tuesday, October 23.

AEN is a non-profit, non-partisan umbrella organization dedicated to helping preserve and protect Alberta's environment. AEN has been flying under the radar for some time but we are re-emerging with urgency, particularly around the issues of climate change and protected areas. 

AEN is seeking young people (30 and under) from around Alberta to join AEN's new Youth Council. We know that young people are very aware, knowledgeable and active in environmental initiatives. In many cases, the established environmental "movement" in Alberta has done a poor job of reaching out to young people, welcoming and supporting their activities, and inviting them to contribute to our activities. This is a tremendous shortcoming that AEN would like to address.

Science Horizons Youth Internship Program

Science Horizons supports green jobs for youth by providing wage subsidies to eligible employers to hire interns in environmental and clean technology sectors. Interns must be recent college or university graduates eligible to work in science, technology, engineering or math (STEM).

Since 1997, Science Horizons has supported over 2700 internship opportunities across Canada.
