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.
Climate Change Connection aims to make Manitobans aware of climate change facts and to inspire them to take action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and to build climate resilient communities
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.
