At Citizens’ Climate Lobby (or CCL), our goals of creating political will for a livable world and empowering our volunteers at the grassroots level, are strongly aligned with the goals of the West Kootenay EcoSociety.
The 100% Renewable Kootenays campaign is a perfect example of that alignment, and how our organizations complement one another. What I love about 100% Renewables Kootenays is that its local focus and aspirational goal can fire up the imagination for what is possible here in our own backyard.
I do this work because we still have a window to avoid catastrophic climate change. In addressing the crisis, we can create a better, more equitable world. Getting involved and working on solutions with others gives me hope, and keeps me from spiralling into despair in the face of this momentous challenge.
Our local CCL chapter always appreciates collaborating with the EcoSociety because of our shared vision, and because EcoSociety staff and volunteers are dedicated, energetic people who are fun to work with. Many CCL members in our community are also EcoSociety supporters because we understand the complementary nature of our work.
Care about local climate action? Want to see the Kootenays transition to 100% renewable energy whilst building a strong green economy that creates plenty of local skilled jobs? Then join as a member and help us build our resources!
