Petition: Deliver a Just Transition Act Now
Mar 24, 2022
I organized one of the Just Transition Day of Action events that took place on March 12. I had never done something quite like that before. 350.org was one of the sponsors was was extremely helpful to guide the process. I liked that there was enough flexibility to organize an event that aligned with local community conditions. As a part of the event, we also collected signatures for a petition that I hope to forward soon to our local MP. The attached document is the the toolkit we are using to do this. You may find this helpful if you want to go a step further and start a local petition. In keeping with Parliamentary Petition protocols, you only need 25 signatures.

Hi Marta. The Future Cities Initiative looks fantastic. Are you familiar with the Future of Small Cities Institute? Their recent webinar on the greening of small American cities was really good and could certainly be used as a framework in Canada: https://www.futureofsmallcities.org/news/the-challenge-and-opportunity-of-greening-americas-small-cities I am thinking that a push to develop local inventories, with public involvement to raise awareness, would be a great way to initiate carbon reduction planning and action. Wondering if you have any ideas on this.
