Pacific Climate Warriors are Raising a Paddle

A delegation of the Pacific Climate Warriors, a 350.org climate activist group from the Pacific Islands, are arriving in Canada today to raise a paddle. During their 9-day trip, they will tour the tar sands in Alberta, engage in public events, and meet with various Indigenous Communities in Western Canada. Through ceremony and storytelling, these climate leaders will share how climate change is having a direct impact on their homes, communities, and cultures. They will also stand in solidarity with Indigenous Peoples who are fighting climate change on the front lines. We all have a better chance to make a difference if we come together in urging world leaders to honour their commitments to limit global warming to 1.5°C and transition to clean energy.

You can follow their Canadian journey on Facebook and Twitter from May 8th- to May 16th. Check out their website to learn more about their events and itinerary.
