Are you considering running in BC’s next municipal elections? Are you committed to standing up for the environment? 


We – the West Coast Climate Action Network – want to connect with you! Click here to fill out a brief form to be registered in our Climate Champions Database. We will be in touch as we gear up to make sure climate is the number one issue in 2022!


The first of our four Round Tables will focus on empowering the community to become engaged at the local level. Topics will include lobbying, relationship-building with like-minded groups and individuals, and understanding how to work with council members and staff.


Our presenters are: 

  • Alex Lidstone, from Climate Caucus; 
  • Sebastian Sadja, President of Force of Nature, a grassroots nonprofit group with the goal to transform the Lower Mainland into Canada’s first ever zero carbon metropolis, and Secretary of WE-CAN;
  • Ben Geselbracht, Nanaimo City Council and a long-time climate activist
