We are the North Shore group working to address climate change in our community, and we invite you to join us!
We're an active group, meeting regularly, and always looking for more parents (and grandparents) to get involved.
Please get in touch if you would like to learn more:
What is Bill C-12 and why is it important for you to get involved?
It's Canada's first attempt to spell out in legislation how we will reach net-zero carbon emissions by 2050, and it needs to be strong enough to change the path we're on within the next 10 years. Right now, it's not.
Find out more and add your name to this petition to strengthen Bill C-12
What would you like to know about climate change?
We hold Meet the Expert sessions in conjunction with our monthly meetings. These sessions are aimed to help us all learn a bit more about interesting topics surrounding climate change. Guest speakers have included Solar Ken from Penfolds Solar; Stuart Gillies - film director talking about a film he made about plastic waste, and Sandi Goldie and Jim Bronson talking about Project Drawdown. You can find past sessions here. Have an idea for an upcoming session? Let us know! [email protected]
Ready to join us? Sign up here. We will keep you up to date with all our meetings and campaigns we are working on.

In response, Jonathan Wilkinson (federal Minister of Environment and Climate Change and MP for Vancouver North) penned this blog about the need for more parents - including dads! - to be involved in climate action.
