Give It Up for the Earth!

Give it up for the Earth! runs from February 26 to April 9, 2020.

A complete suite of measures is needed to address the climate crisis and move towards decarbonization by 2050. At the heart of a good way forward is respect for Indigenous autonomy and consideration of people who have been traditionally marginalized and are particularly vulnerable in the climate crisis. Essential climate action measures include ending fossil fuel subsidies, strengthening carbon emissions pricing, and investing low-carbon infrastructure.

Drawing many of these issues together, the Give it up for the Earth! campaign calls on the federal government to invest in a National Just Transition and Decarbonization Strategy. We know that a modernized, diversified green economy will lead to major emissions reductions, create good, secure jobs, and promote the well-being of everyone in Canada.

Holy Cross’ Global Justice Team will be participating in Give it up for the EARTH! 2020 – stay tuned for more information!
