Imagining 2030: What Could Climate Justice Look Like in Mi’kma’ki?

February 27, 2018 , 6:30pm-8:30pm

Conversations on climate action, good jobs, and rights for workers and Indigenous communities.

Nova Scotia needs new goals for climate action, and a new way of looking at climate justice. Groups have called for public engagement on the development of two wide-reaching pieces of climate and environmental policy with the Government of Nova Scotia: the Environmental Goals and Sustainable Prosperity Act and cap-and-trade regulations. The development of these policies provides an opportunity to build a stronger coalition and mobilize to call for goals that will get us closer to climate justice in 2030.

This event will feature a roundtable of speakers from various perspectives on climate change, workers’ transition, Indigenous rights other important aspects of climate justice, who will speak to how they imagine climate justice in Mi’kma’ki in 2030.

Following the discussion audience members will be invited to host or participate in small group discussions about opportunities to act, participate, and mobilize..
