The fight for climate action is first and foremost a fight for justice

Climate change is not just an environmental problem. It is a human problem that impacts and exacerbates the most critical issues of our time, from health, to economic inequality, to racial justice. The impacts of climate change are felt by all populations and species on earth. In order to find solutions that work, we must solve it together.

Climate Action Network – Réseau action climat Canada is the farthest-reaching network of organizations taking action on climate and energy issues in the land currently called Canada. We work to forge connections and build consensus for transformative climate action and justice, at home and internationally.
