Council of Canadians
System Change Not Climate Change is a multi-media tool for climate justice organized by the Council of Canadians’ Climate Justice for People and the Planet campaign.
The popular slogan: “system change not climate change” has become central to a growing and vibrant global movement for climate justice. But what does “system change” mean? And what does it have to do with the climate crisis? This project features videos from a range of speakers including academics, workers and activists who address these questions, talk about why we need system change, and give examples of new ways forward.
The project aims to build awareness and inspire actions for climate justice in Canada and around the world through the organizing of community-based teach-ins using these videos.
Systemchange.ca is a free, public, interactive website. It is our hope that the speakers’ messages will be shared broadly. We encourage you to use the videos in whatever setting suits you, your organization, union or group. Make sure to add your event to the map of teach-ins.
