Local seniors have launched a fundraising campaign to help three environmental organizations replace funding recently cut by the provincial government.

Called “Manitoba Seniors for Sustainability”, the campaign hopes to inspire others from their generation to donate as they are able.

Activity Sheets

Earth Week may be over but you can still enjoy these family friendly activities that will get you thinking about nature.

We have recently added two activity sheets to our Resources for Schools page:

IPCC 1.5℃ Report Analysis

HERE IS A LINK

to a 1-sheet PDF Summary of the IPCC 1.5℃ report including suggestions for a strategy to help us prepare for this future.

The IPCC released a report on how quickly we need to take carbon out of the atmosphere to limit global warming to 1.5°C and avoid its most destructive consequences.

Thanks to a generous grant from the Winnipeg Foundation, Climate Change Connection is able to remain in operation.

But you can still help us enhance our work to bring climate change information and solutions to you, to Manitobans like you, and to the world.

All donations are tax deductible.

The future will thank you. And so will we.

Stay Climate Change Connected!
