Leap Year 2016

Last fall, many of Canada's most prominent artists, authors and musicians, together with a diverse group of organizations from Idle No More and Oxfam to Black Lives Matter Toronto and The David Suzuki Foundation - launched an inspiring declaration for a country based on caring for each other and the earth.

 

If you have not already done so, please consider joining us in supporting the vision for a justice based transition away from fossil fuels by signing the Leap Manifesto.

 

The Leap Manifesto sets out a vision for Canada to fight climate change in a way that changes our country for the better – achieving meaningful justice for First Nations, creating more and better jobs, restoring and expanding our social safety net, reducing economic, racial and gender inequalities, as well as welcoming many more migrants and refugees.

 

We can move in the direction of a 100% clean economy – while building a fairer, more humane society in the process.
