Event description

Description

The Climate Justice Teach-In is an intersectional opportunity to deepen our understanding of climate change. Workshops and discussions will explore the many interconnected impacts and drivers of climate change. Connections will be made to Indigenous rights and racial and social justice in Canada and around the world. We are committed to the protection of water, air, and land, for all species, for present and future generations.

Together, we can make a difference!
