Toronto People's Assembly on Climate Justice
Haultain Building, University of Toronto (rear of 170 College St)
As part of a global call for actions on climate justice, the Toronto People's Assembly on Climate Justice 2015 will bring together activists, organizations, people from all walks of life for an open forum to discuss community-based responses to the climate crisis. This event is also a direct response to the 2015 United Nations Conference of the Parties talks on the climate in Paris (November 30th to December 11th), and seeks to find alternatives outside of government and industry initiatives, which have served the interests of the rich, rather than people today or our collective future.
Several People’s Assemblies on the Climate were held in Toronto between 2010 and 2012. This 2015 gathering seeks to re-catalyze, revitalize, and revision strength for our collective fight for climate justice.
The Toronto People's Assembly on Climate Justice will feature workshops, panels, and assemblies on themes include analyzing climate issues through lenses of race, class, migration & war, gender, health & food justice, local issues of municipal accountability, divestment, anti-capitalist alternatives, and indigenous land rights, sovereignty & solidarity. More details to come!
We are seeking broad and active support from organizations and individuals. If your group would like to add your name to endorsements of the Toronto People’s Assembly on Climate Justice, provide financial or other material support and/
ACCESSIBILITY: wheelchair accessible space; event will be live-captioned; lunch and children's programming will be provided
