Welcome to Toronto Party!

One day, once a year, we stand up together and demand real solutions to the climate crisis. Because when the world comes together, there is no challenge we cannot overcome.

6:00 - 6:20pm "What does COP22 mean for us moving forward?" by Lauren Latour, Canadian Youth Delegation

Lauren_.png

Lauren is a young climate activist living and working on the land of the Haudenosaunee Ojibway/Chippewa, Anishinabek peoples (London, Ontario). While attending university at Mount Allison, Lauren was a core organizer and founder of Divest MTA, in addition to campaigning against fracking in New Brunswick, and the Northern Gateway pipeline.

In September 2014, she walked alongside her Divest MTA peers and 400,000 other climate activists in the People’s Climate March in New York City; the experience is one she credits with catalyzing her engagement in climate justice organizing.

Lauren was a member of the Canadian Youth Delegation to COP21 in Paris last year, an opportunity she considers invaluable, and one which has provided her with a set of skills she is eager to hone thorough working with her fellow CYD team members this year in Marrakech. In November at COP22, the Canadian government has plenty to prove, and many promises to keep - Lauren looks forward to organizing with the team to ensure our leadership understands that bold climate action must be taken, and leadership must be demonstrated.

 

6:20 - 6:40pm "Public education is a pre-requisite for successful climate policy implementation" by Steve Lee, 3% Project of FES

Steve Lee is a 24-year-old climate change activist, a policy advocate to the United Nations, and a global speaker. He is the Executive Director of FES (Foundation for Environmental Stewardship) and its 3% Project, which mobilizes 1,000,000 Canadian youth - that's 3% of Canada - through 5 national tours across 600 schools. It provides youth-friendly and holistic education on climate change and empowers them to take action on solving climate change in their local communities today.

A prolific global speaker, Steve has represented the Canadian youth on the issues of Climate Change, Sustainable Development, and Youth Empowerment at over a dozen international forums including G8 Summit, NATO, Facebook, UNEP, UNESCO, UNICEF, and World Bank.

Steve is personally trained by Al Gore as a Climate Reality Leader, featured on news channels, blogs, and newspapers, and a University of Toronto graduate of Physiology and Human Biology. An entrepreneur, Steve founded Steve’s Guidebook, a publisher for university study guides and RevIT² Solutions, a market research consulting firm for private investment firms.

 

6:40 - 7:00pm by , TransformTO, City of Toronto

TransformTO is a collaborative project engaging the community in achieving an 80% reduction in Toronto’s greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. The project is supported by community consultations and technical scenario modelling to help understand how deep carbon reduction will affect Torontonians over the long term. The City of Toronto's Environment and Energy Division and the Toronto Atmospheric Fund are co-leading this initiative. TransformTO will lead to a long-term climate strategy that will update the existing City of Toronto Climate Change Action Plan. The first of two TransformTO reports has been adopted by the City of Toronto, Parks and Environment Committee on November 17 and will be presented to City Council in December. The report identifies short-term actions to set Toronto on the path to meet our targets including our interim goal of a 30 per cent reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2020.
