  • Climate Strike Sept 20

    Calgary youth are convening before UN Secretary-General António Guterres will host the 2019 Climate Action Summit on September 23 to meet the climate challenge. https://www.un.org/en/climatechange/

    Join #FridaysForFuture: a movement that began in August 2018, after 15-year-old Greta Thunberg sat in front of the Swedish parliament every schoolday for three weeks, to protest against the lack of action on the climate crisis. She posted what she was doing on Instagram and Twitter and it soon went viral. On the 8th of September 2018, Greta decided to continue striking every Friday until Swedish policies provided a safe pathway well under 2-degree C, in line with the Paris agreement.

  • "Media and Climate: A Crisis in Coverage" with Sean Holman

    During Global Climate Week, the Calgary Climate Hub is excited to host a provocative evening with Sean Holman, author of:  Dear Journalists of Canada: Start Reporting Climate Change as an Emergency to be followed by a panel discussion with some of Calgary’s most distinguished journalists.   

    The climate crisis is the biggest story of our age. But not enough journalists are treating it that way. And that's hindering public and private attempts to prevent catastrophic global heating. Sean, and our panel will discuss what responsible coverage of this story should look like and the important role journalists can play during this disaster.

    Sean Holman is an associate professor of journalism at Mount Royal University, freedom of information researcher and the founding editor of the pioneering online investigative political news service Public Eye. A former syndicated columnist and talk show host, he also worked as a legislative reporter for 24 Hours Vancouver and the Vancouver Sun. And he produced, directed and wrote the documentary Whipped: The Secret World of Party Discipline.

    In 2004, Holman won the Jack Webster Award for a five-month investigation into what became known as the Doug Walls affair. Eight years later, he received a special mention in J-Source’s Canadian Newsperson of the Year competition for “using new and emerging media technologies to expand the number of journalistic voices in this country and to redefine the relationship between journalists and citizens.” He is currently writing a book on the history of freedom of information and is active in campaigning for the news media to cover the climate crisis with the urgency it demands.

     

    Tickets are $10.00, and $5.00 for students/low income. If you would like to attend, and the ticket price is a barrier to you, please contact admin@calgaryclimatehub.ca for more information.

    (There will also be a climate strike outside of City Hall at 12:00 pm.)

  • Student Walk Out

    "Why should we be studying for a future that isn't guaranteed?"

    Greta Thunberg started the school climate strikes in response to the climate crisis. As students, eco-anxiety is a very real issue. This is why we need your help on September 27th to help push our governments to take climate action.

    Students are encouraged to walkout of their classrooms at 10:30 AM on September 27th to strike for climate action. The timeframe for your walkout can be any length of time!

    For more information, visit https://www.facebook.com/events/376897539665084/?ti=as 

    There will be a strike down at city hall that students may attend if they wish to continue their strike on a larger scale! Please contact YYC4GND if you have any questions or concerns.
