On Saturday, May 18, Erickson Founder, Marilyn Atkinson, hosted a town hall meeting in her home city of North Vancouver in BC, Canada to discuss the many environmental and societal issues that millions around the world are facing. The aim of this town hall was to create ambitious plans and generate ideas on how to tackle these issues at the individual, community and government levels.
This event is one of many Green New Deal town halls being held in communities across Canada in May 2019. The conversation is being led from the ground up through town halls bringing together people from all walks of life to discuss our vision for a new economy – one that cuts global warming pollution, sees the full implementation of the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, the Right to Free Prior and Informed Consent, and the TRC recommendations, creates millions of green jobs, and makes sure no one gets left behind. The input from these town halls will be used to inform a vision for a Green New Deal for all.
