The Green New Deal (GND) is a movement to respond to the multiple and interconnected crises faced by humanity in this moment in history.
The GND offers the framework for the transformative change required toby build creating a just and sustainable future for everyone. It is far reaching and aims to reach across all levels of government to achieve the “rapid, far-reaching and unprecedented changes in all aspects of society” that the IPCC report calls for.
The Green New Deal is organized around principles of economic justice, Indigenous rights, a livable planet.
It is committed to confronting the roots of the climate crisis in Canada: capitalism and colonialism.
Corporate control of our democratic institutions is a leading barrier to meaningful action against climate change. A GND seeks economic solutions that lie outside of the Canadian history of accelerating unsustainable resource extraction.
