Please join Saskforward, the Corporate Mapping Project, Climate Justice Saskatoon, the Regina Public Interest Research Group and UNIFOR for the Just Transitions: Building Saskatchewan’s Next Economy summit!
Energy transitions have already begun in many parts of the world, and are needed to thwart the further warming of our planet. Saskatchewan’s leaders are failing to prepare our communities for the coming realities. Please join us for this unique and important summit where we will discuss the possibilities and pathways for transitioning Saskatchewan’s economy to renewable energies.
We encourage you to participate in crafting the messages and movements needed to forge a just future for workers, communities, Indigenous peoples and our future generations.
This event is free and open to the public, including youth. Child minding is available.

- Transitioning Employment and Work (Hadrian Mertins-Kirkwood, Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives)
