The Pact for a Green New Deal / Un New Deal Vert

A Green New Deal is a vision of rapid, inclusive and far-reaching transition to slash emissions, protect critical biodiversity, meet the demands of the multiple crises we face, and create over a million jobs in the process.

It would involve the full implementation of the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP) including the right to Free, Prior and Informed Consent (FPIC), dozens of other pieces of legislation, new programs and institutions, and a huge mobilization calling on the creativity and participation of all of us. We know that when the state perceives an emergency, rapid transformations occur. Banks are saved, auto companies are bailed out. We have the ability to build a 100% renewable economy based on public ownership and dignified, well-paying work and know that the federal government, in collaboration with all other levels of government and Indigenous Nations, has the capacity to pull this off. But we also know that only the people - in a deep, wide, and democratic process - can give it the legitimacy and true diversity it needs to succeed.

Stand.earth has joined with a broad coalition of organizations and community groups to push for a Green New Deal in Canada.
