A climate book recommendation for you

Join our friends for an important conversation on climate justice and land back on January 31st r1

Friends,

We know we need to win big, transformative changes to truly tackle the climate crisis and achieve an energy transition that leaves no one behind.

To do that, it's crucial to build a shared vision for what a just transition looks like and how we can get there from the oil-soaked Canada we currently live in. That’s why I'm so excited to share a new book some of our favourite climate thinkers and doers are launching this month!

The End of This World: Climate Justice in So-Called Canada is a joint vision from six climate thinkers and organizers to lay out a pathway for what a just transition off oil and gas looks like and how we build a caring economy that provides social support for all, redistributes wealth, and ensures stolen land is rightfully reclaimed under the jurisdiction and sovereignty of Indigenous peoples.

You can pre-order your copy of the book The End of This World which comes out January 17 here.

The collective behind this book is also hosting a virtual reading and conversation on January 31st. Here are all the details:

We can no longer allow our politicians to drag their feet on critical climate action. While politicians like Alberta's Environment Minister Sonya Savage complain about even using the term "Transition," the truth is a strong majority of us want bolder action from our governments to accelerate the shift to 100% clean energy in a way that leaves no one behind.1 The End of This World offers a much-needed vision for how we move from our current economy built on colonization and extraction to a healthier world that centres Indigenous knowledges and climate justice.

We hope you can join the conversation and virtual book launch on January 31st!

Sincerely,

Jennifer
