Petition to the House of Commons in Parliament assembled

Whereas:
  • Given current ecological, social and economic crises, our collective future depends on all levels of government and Canadians to make informed and responsible decisions regarding environment and sustainability matters;
  • We have entered an age whereby human impact is approaching many ecological system boundaries such as fresh water usage, atmospheric pollution, and extinction of species;
  • The current state of environmental education in Canada is inadequate to address these challenges and empower citizens to understand the complexity of the issues and take effective action; and
  • The government of Canada should provide coherent national leadership in environmental and sustainability education and recognize the importance of Indigenous knowledges and practices in the education of Indigenous and non-indigenous peoples.
We, the undersigned, citizens and residents of Canada, call upon the House of Commons in Parliament assembled to:
1.Take a leadership role in enacting a Canadian strategy that supports educators, communicators, community leaders, as well as provincial and municipal governments to take actions that result in healthy, sustainable, and flourishing human and ecological communities; and
2. Recognize fresh air, clean drinking water and healthy food as being human rights for all Canadians.
