System Change! not Climate Change Teach-In

  • Sat, November 26, 2011
  • 1:00 PM - 5:00 PM
  • Mahone Bay Centre
The South Shore Chapter of the Council of Canadians is hosting a teach-in, “System Change! not Climate Change” at Mahone Bay Centre on Saturday, November 26 from 1 – 5 pm. 

Teach-ins bring people together to share knowledge and information, have discussions and plan actions to address the growing effects of climate change. The UN is holding another round of climate talks in Durban, South Africa from November 28 to December 9, 2011. While UN climate talks are failing to produce an equitable, effective agreement in the face of one of the worst crises humanity has ever faced, we must take action. 

The teach-in will focus on four general themes:
  • Agriculture/Food Security at 1 pm
  • Rights of Nature/Resources at 2 pm
  • Economy/Sustainability at 3 pm
  • Vision for the South Shore at 4 pm
We will show one or two short videos to begin each hour, followed by facilitated group discussion with people from our community who are working on these issues. Bring your thoughts and ideas of how we can influence policy for the future of the South Shore. Come for one topic, or stay all afternoon. Refreshments will be available, and donations happily received.   

This event is hosted by the Council of Canadians - South Shore Chapter.
