For Our Kids Sunshine Coast is a group of parents and grandparents living up and down British Columbia’s Sunshine Coast - from Langdale to Lund. We are part of the national For Our Kids network and we are committed to taking action on climate change as it is the single biggest threat to our world right now and our children’s future. We feel the urgency to help our communities and society shift away from fossil fuels and destructive environmental practices to create a more just and safe world for our kids.
We acknowledge that we live on the traditional, ancestral, and unceded Indigenous territories of the shíshálh, sḵwx̱wú7mesh, and Tla’amin First Nations and we are committed to contributing meaningfully to reconciliation and decolonization.
As parents, we understand how hard it can be to make time for activism, but our aim is to make taking action more inclusive and easier for parents. No action is too small, no action is too big. We are an inclusive group with a national leadership that is founded on principles of anti-oppression and anti-racism. Follow us on social media or subscribe to our mailing list below to find out ways you can get involved, join one of our organizing meetings, or reach out if you would like to know more.
Climate activism is a necessary skill for all 20th century parents. It will take nothing less than a massive movement to make the changes needed to turn the tides on climate change… we need all hands on deck!
