About the Toronto People’s Assembly on Climate Justice:

On June 23rd, 2010, the People’s Assembly on Climate Justice came to life in Toronto as part of the community resistance to the G20. On December 4th, 2010, a second instalment solidified the Assembly as a permanent space for ongoing, community-based, collective dialogue to confront the climate crisis.

Our goal is not just to demand action, it is also to manifest a new form of organizational paradigm to generate positive, radical, participatory solutions within our urban context. Together we can reinvent cycles that positively participate in the health and ecology of the planet, while overcoming our dependence on the industrial system.
