Friends House, 60 Lowther Ave, Toronto (near Bloor and St. George)
In 2015, we have a chance to make a difference - here in Ontario we have a minister for the environment and climate change, Glen Murray, who over the next six months will be developing a long-term action strategy for Ontario for net-zero carbon by 2050.
We need to get the MPPs at Queen’s Park on board! Come and learn how to talk to your MPP and build this campaign!
TWO STREAMS: FOR THOSE NEW TO CLIMATE LOBBYING: HOW TO TALK WITH YOUR MPP!
Includes presentation on Citizens Climate Lobby and Fee and Dvidend , the success of the BC carbon tax, background of our work with the province.
How to do a climate reality presentation: how to reach those who are resistant - resources and practice
FOR THOSE EXPERIENCED IN CLIMATE LOBBYING (or already active in climate groups)
Strategy session; goals, barriers, strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, challenges; develop a workplan for the campaign, including building a provincial network; continuation of process with Glen Murray’s office; planning for lobby day at Queen’s Park.
END WITH JOINT SESSION on provincial campaign organizing and sharing.
