This Giving Tuesday, Help AWARE Keep Climate Action on the Agenda.

At the UN Climate Conference, COP26, leaders failed to live up to expectations to make bold commitments to take action on climate change at the global scale. Closer to home we have felt very real impacts of climate change: record drought, a searing heat dome, imminent threat of wildfires, and weather extremes like the rainfall of the last few days.

This is an emergency. The need for climate action has never been more evident. And it is clear that action will be driven by communities.

Here in Whistler, AWARE has been at the table for three decades to take actions that ensure we protect whatโ€™s at stake. We advocate in the decision-making processes that determine how our community uses natural resources, protects the landscape, and sets direction for our shared future.

Giving Tuesday is November 30. Can you make a donation to keep climate action a top priority in Whistler?

Weโ€™re aiming to raise $15,000 to support our advocacy, and continue working for the Whistler environment.  $50 or $100 can go a long way for our advocacy work on municipal committees of council, like the Forest and Wildland Advisory Committee, Zero Waste Select Committee, and the Whistler Bear Advisory Committee.

Climate action is essential to protect this beautiful mountain playground we call home. We need to advocate for forests, wetlands and ecosystems, which are vital to protect us from the impacts of climate change. Support us today to keep climate action on the agenda in Whistler.
