Step Up, Canada! was a campaign for climate action launched by Toronto350.org in partnership with the Toronto-based People's Climate Movement. Our campaign was focused on direct public outreach to the broader Toronto community, helping people make the links between climate change, the Canadian federal election, and the upcoming international climate negotiations happening this year in Paris at COP21.
Our central message was that Canada urgently needs to "step up" in its ambition on climate action, and play its part both in implementing sound national climate policy and engaging on the global stage. Our public presentations gave Canadians the information & tools they need to make an informed decision as voters going into the upcoming federal election, helping to shape public opinion on climate.
It's time for Canada to Step Up!
