350Vancouver leads events and also joins in those organized by others around issues related to climate change. We use art, music, performance and people on the streets to bring attention to where it needs to be to address the climate crisis. Events are also the focus around which we build our creative and energetic 350 community.

Canada needs a new economy that works for people and the planet.
Communities across Canada are stepped up, uniting many different frontline fights to show that we are greater than a single dirty energy project. Canada is ready for an economy that reflects our values, creates jobs, and tackles climate change.
We don’t have to choose between the economy and the environment. Real climate action means investing in mass public transit, clean energy infrastructure and affordable housing. It means expanding low-carbon sectors like healthcare, education and sustainable agriculture. By taking real climate action, we can create an economy that is more fair and equal and offers hundreds of thousands of good new jobs.
We want an economy where workers win, communities have more democratic control, and those most impacted and impoverished are the first in line to benefit. An economy that honours Indigenous peoples’ rights and recognizes their role in protecting the land, air and water for everyone. An economy that respects the limits of the environment made clear by climate science. This means fighting against the expansion of tar sands infrastructure and building a better economy locally.
