Are you very concerned about the catastrophic consequences of global warming and more than ready to act on this? Citizens’ Climate Lobby (CCL) Halifax is searching for a new Group Leader (who can be located anywhere in the province and can rename the organization CCL Nova Scotia if so desired). It’s a great volunteer opportunity to meet other dedicated and compassionate climate change volunteers from across Canada (by way of monthly conference calls and lobbying on Parliament Hill) and learn a myriad of transferable skills. The time commitment is up to you, from 2-4 hours a week on average.
CCL is a non-profit, non-partisan, grassroots advocacy organization focused on national policies to address climate change. Our consistently respectful, nonpartisan approach to climate education is designed to create a broad, sustainable foundation for climate action across all geographic regions and political inclinations. By building upon shared values rather than partisan divides, and empowering our supporters to work in keeping with the concerns of their local communities, we work towards the adoption of fair, effective, and sustainable climate change solutions. In order to generate the political will necessary for passage of our Carbon Fee and Dividend proposal we train and support volunteers to build relationships with elected officials, the media and their local community.
