Most of the crucial day-to-day issues we face in this pandemic can be linked back to our climate vulnerabilities. As you may be aware, organizations in St. James Town have been working diligently on climate related concerns including food security and emergency preparedness.
Because of this work, we have been able to bring additional funding and expand our work through the Community Climate Action (CCA) project. Rethink Sustainability Initiatives (RSI) is leading the project in collaboration with Trinity Life/New Common. The initiative will build on the work already underway in St. James Town to address climate issues and impacts, starting with awareness building and moving to ways we can work together on actions that will make the community safer and healthier in the face of climate impacts now and for the future.
Rethink Sustainability Initiatives (RSI) is Not-for-Profit “think and do” organization that engages, advises and partners with thought leaders, innovators, and organizations to advance the sustainability and resiliency of businesses, institutions and communities to thrive into the future. We provide access to progressive leaders and actionable insights for Canadians and our global partners through formal and informal discussions, community projects, action learning accelerators, digital and print publications and education.
