The Environment Team is made up of a diverse group of people with many different interests that intersect in different ways. What brings us together is a desire to protect the environment.

Many of us are organizers, peace marshals, or participants in the marches and rallies against pipelines, tankers, and climate change. As well, we organize film screenings, educational events, and fundraising dinners in support of various social justice, Indigenous, and environmental groups.

There are two dedicated groups within the Enviro Team: the Zero Waste Team and the Wild Salmon Action Team

According to UN Habitat: … cities consume 78 per cent of the world’s energy and produce more than 60 per cent of greenhouse gas emissions. Yet, they account for less than 2 per cent of the Earth’s surface.

The Zero Waste Team challenges consumption and disrupts consumer culture by hosting educational events, workshops and social gatherings on … everyday climate action.
