Climate Change Connection is a program of the Manitoba Eco Network.
We are a non-government organization working to
- educate Manitobans about climate change
- facilitate climate change solutions
What do we do?
- We build awareness of climate change so Manitobans will reduce their greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions – both individually and as a community.
- We work to expand our network of people and groups who are involved in climate change solutions.
What can we do for you?
Here is a list of services we offer:
- Idle Free Zone signs
- Presentations to groups
- Event displays
- Youth conferences
- “Boot camp” workshops
- Connection to a network of active groups
- Connection_update electronic newsletter
- Manitoba-specific info, publications, & other resources
We started in January 2002 as part of Canada’s effort to meet our Kyoto Protocol objectives.
Centres were created in each province and territory to serve as inter-connected information hubs. That network no longer exists formally, but we still work with our current partners to connect Manitobans to climate change facts and solutions.
