Who are we?


Climate Change Connection is a non-government organization working to educate Manitobans about climate change and to facilitate climate change solutions.

This is what we offer:


This website will inform you about climate change and help you get connected to others who are working on this issue.


Governance & funding


We are administered by the Manitoba Eco-Network and are governed by a Steering Committee.

The Steering Committee is co-chaired by the Manitoba Eco-Network and the University of Winnipeg.

Primary funding is provided by the Province of Manitoba and Manitoba Hydro.

We work to objectives, deliverables, and metrics laid out in our annual business plan. We report progress twice a year.

 


Our history


We were started in January 2002 as part of Canada's effort to meet our Kyoto Protocol objectives.

Centres were created in each province and territory to serve as inter-connected information hubs. That network no longer exists formally, but we still work with our current partners to connect Manitobans to climate change facts and solutions.

Our Vision for the future


Manitobans will be aware of climate change facts related to Manitoba and will reduce their greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, both individually and as a community.


What do we do?

We are building awareness of climate change so Manitobans will reduce their greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions - both individually and as a community.

We work to expand our network of groups who are involved in climate change solutions.
