Let’s face it, climate change is a complex issue. Climate change has often been described as a ‘wicked problem’ due to its complexity and interconnected nature with other issues where a variety of solutions are required. And that’s why the HCC Reads campaign was developed.
What is the HCC Reads campaign?
The HCC Reads campaign engages local community members in the complex issue of climate change. It is a joint project with local libraries (Burlington, Halton Hills, Milton and Oakville), Greening Sacred Spaces Halton-Peel, and the Halton Climate Collective (HCC). The first campaign brought you Paul Hawken’s book “Drawdown: The Most Comprehensive Plan Ever Proposed to Reverse Global Warming.”
The Right to be Cold
Be part of the conversation! Go to your local library and pick up Sheila Watt-Cloutier’s book “The Right to be Cold.” Then, join Sheila Watt-Cloutier in a virtual discussion about how climate change is impacting the Canadian Arctic.
Who is Sheila Watt-Cloutier?
Sheila is an environmental, cultural and human rights activist. In 2007, Sheila was nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize for her work advocating that climate change is a human rights issue. She is an Officer of the Order of Canada and has won many awards for her work. She wrote “The Right to be Cold” based on her regional, national and international work exploring the parallels between safeguarding the Arctic and the survival of Inuit culture and the world.
