ClimateFast starts or participates climate action campaigns at all levels of government:
Read about our Fossil Fuel campaign, budget submissions and other issues tackled by Climate Fast.
ClimateFast has been very active at the provincial level. We have written letters and signed petitions to the Premier of Ontario and MPPs urging action on issues such as renewable energy, protection of wetlands and the need for a People's Climate Policy.
Climatefast worked with other climate action groups to mobilize Toronto residents to call on City Council to endorse the Fossil Fuel Non-Proliferation Treaty (FFNPT), which they did on June 14, 2021. We have made budget deputations, advocated for active transportation and met with municipal councillors to advance climate action..
We need to inspire citizens and urge decision makers to find the courage, wisdom and determination to take the urgent measures needed to assure a safe climate for our children and grandchildren. Climate Change is a justice issue, as the effects of the climate change will be unleashed on future generations, and on nations who have the least responsibility for causing global warming.
Fossil Fuel Non-Proliferation Treaty -Toronto Campaign
We helped mobilize the City of Toronto to call on City Council to endorse the Fossil Fuel Non-Proliferation Treaty (FFNPT) and to ask the Canadian government to endorse the treaty and support its passage at the upcoming COP26 UN Climate Change Conference in November 2021. This was achieved on June 14, 2021.
Kitchen Table Climate Conversations
Kitchen Table Climate Conversations (KTCC’s) is a grassroots initiative spearheaded by ClimateFast and led by those willing to host or facilitate a conversation. Its goal is to empower people to hold conversations about climate justice that increase understanding of the climate emergency, honour emotions, spark effective actions and solutions, emphasize the power of collective efforts, and underline the need for political advocacy. In March and April 2021, a series of KTCC training sessions was provided. Click here for more information about KTCC resources, hosting conversations and support meetings.
