The Vancouver Observer
The Vancouver Observer is an online newspaper that features award-winning investigative reporting, national, regional and city news reporting, and outstanding coverage of entertainment, food and culture. The VO helps keeps its readers informed and empowered about what’s going on in the city and in Ottawa from the alleyways to the halls of power.
At a time when new Environment Canada rules have led to a steep decline in climate change in Canada coverage since 2007, the Vancouver Observer has intensified environmental coverage and built a national audience for this coverage. The Vancouver Observer has also built a large and rapidly growing social media network to inform people and have meaningful conversations about the environment.
Climate Access is a “network of networks” that provides climate communications practitioners with access to the necessary tools, knowledge and people to increase public support for action on climate. As a bridge between research and action, ClimateAccess fosters collaboration and facilitates peer-to-peer exchanges of information on climate communications, public engagement and behavior change.
The Suzuki Elders are a voluntary association of self-identified elders working with and through the David Suzuki Foundation. We bring our voices, experiences and memories to mentor, motivate and support other elders and younger generations in dialogue and action on environmental issues. Suzuki Elders listen, learn, share and act through educating, communicating connecting and advocacy.
Stonehouse Standing Circle
The Stonehouse is a learning site where academics and front line people in civil society are exploring social change, and learning about social change; what works, and what doesn’t. We are a lab of social change research and practice, organizing learning circles, meetings, and discussions. Stonehouse is the place to go to run into the world’s leading thinkers when it comes to social change.
