Defend Our Climate, Defend Our Communities

Whitehorse-Rally

Those of you who follow my twitter feed may have noticed a lot of activity leading up to the national day of climate action on Nov. 16.    One of my greatest passions outside of art is fighting climate change (conveniently these two passions even sometimes overlap) – it’s why my masters degree is in glaciology, why I spent years at the UN climate negotiations, why I worked as the national director of the Canadian Youth Climate Coalition, why I teach geography at Yukon College, why I joined the staff team at CPAWS-Yukon, and why when LeadNow asked me to organize a rally in Whitehorse over the weekend I agreed.  I wanted to give you all a glimpse into this other side of my life, by sharing some images and video from the over 130 rallies comprised of over 10,000 people that took place across Canada on Saturday – including the 90 people (and 10 dogs) who brave -20 degrees Celsius in Whitehorse for over an hour.

With my Dad: climate is a family affair in my household.
