The Climate Mobilization--Faced with a catastrophically failing system, the only rational response is a system overhaul. To protect humanity, we need a massive transformation of our economy and society in a matter of years, not decades. We must rapidly direct our resources toward a singular national purpose: restoring a safe climate for our world.

The Leap Manifesto--We call for a Canada based on caring for each other and the planet, moving swiftly to a post-carbon future, upholding Indigenous rights, and pursuing economic justice for all.

World on the Edge, Earth Policy Institute--In this urgent time, World on the Edge calls out the pivotal environmental issues and how to solve them now.
