Story

About 2,000,000 seniors – 20% of all Canadian seniors, have told pollsters that they are concerned or very concerned about the climate emergency. They fear for their grandchildren’s future, and for the wellbeing of the planet. This is a significant block of voters, consumers, and neighbours who can influence decisions about the speed and quality of climate action.

In fall 2024, the ‘Building Your Climate Legacy’ project will mobilize seniors across Canada to take action. These actions will demonstrate to Canadians, and especially to decision-makers at all levels of government that a large number of seniors are concerned enough about the climate emergency to act.

Seniors’ action can take many forms, from preserving Canada’s natural habitat, investing in energy efficient non-fossil fuel heating and transport, and divesting from banks and companies that invest in the carbon economy. It can take the form of talking to family, neighbours, businesses and various levels of government about the importance of tackling the climate emergency. While the actions must be meaningful, what’s most important is that we are declaring that now is the time to act!

We are moving forward to make this initiative a reality, but we need your help along the way. Donations to the Building Your Climate Legacy project will help us develop this project for its fall 2024 launch, and allow us to reach as many Canadian seniors as possible.
