Event description
Join us to learn and discuss how we can fight climate change and help Alberta's economy thrive at the same time!

About this Event

If you've ever felt worried about what's happening to our planet, or if you've ever wondered about the uncertain future of our province's economy, this is a chance to discuss practical ways in which our combined private and public sectors could create meaningful, lasting change.

Permeate, our organization, is a grassroots advocacy group that is concerned with:

  • Social services that can't cope with growing social and economic inequality.
  • Stagnation in an increasingly less competitive energy sector.
  • Our food supply's lack of sustainability and affordability.
  • Ineffective, wasteful planning of our city's land use and transportation.

First of all, we want to show you that none of these problems are unsolvable. We'll be presenting our Green New Deal, which presents one possible plan of action. It's centered around municipal and provincial sustainability programs which have been proven to work elsewhere, and which we believe could work just as well here.

More importantly, this event will be an opportunity for you to let your voices and personal ideas be heard. After the presentation, we will break out into discussion groups around the sections of our Green New Deal:

  • Housing and land management
  • Energy
  • Food security
  • Social services
  • Transportation
  • Waste management

We will keep building on our proposal, to make it as solid as it can be, and to carry its message through to our municipal government - and beyond. That message? That our city is willing to take action on climate change, and that in doing so, it can truly become a better place for all.
