Resource List

The resource list for this event looks a little different as it reflects our open conversation about issues and questions that have been raised in the Noons for Now series thus far.

This week, our conversation centered on an idea that came up at our teach-in on Student Climate Activism – the desire to foster more collaboration and cooperation with other environmental organizations in Ottawa. There are some groups in the city, like CAFES, that are already doing this work.

Community Climate Calendar:

One idea that we discussed was the creation of a collective google calendar to share events and initiatives. Climate Commons is currently developing the calendar and reaching out to local organizations about it. Clike here to access the community calendar.

Climate Action Resource List:

There was also a desire to offer resources for individuals who are interested in getting involved in climate action but are unsure of where to begin. We’re starting to gather materials that would be helpful and we welcome any suggestions you might have!
