Late Resolution 2: Global climate emergency endorsement
SUBMITTED BY: Co-operative Housing Federation of British Columbia
CONTACT: Jarrett Hagglund
This resolution is for the meeting of:
✓ All CHF Canada members
- THAT CHF Canada endorse the efforts of individuals, communities; and all levels of government in declaring a global climate emergency.
OUR REASONS FOR THIS RESOLUTION ARE:
- According to the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change there are only twelve years left to reduce climate change in order to avoid severe drought, floods, forest fires, extreme heat and poverty for hundreds of millions of people.
- Housing Co-ops in Canada are committed in principal to concern for the community, environmental sustainability, Indigenous reconciliation and poverty reduction.
- The sustainability of coops and our movement is reliant on the sustainability of our planet.
WE THINK THAT THIS WILL COST:
