The Canadian Unitarian Council is one of 65 organizations that launched this movement on May 6th, calling on Canadians to urge their leaders to:
Meet the demands of Indigenous knowledge and science and cut Canada’s emissions in half in 11 years while protecting cultural and biological diversity.
Oversee a rapid, inclusive and far-reaching transition to deeply reduce greenhouse gas emissions and protect critical biodiversity.
Fully implement the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP).
Meet the demands of the multiple crises we face, create over a million jobs in the process, leave no one behind and build a better present and future for all of us.
