The Leap Manifesto launch in Paris

Yesterday we were privileged to be at the launch of the Leap Manifesto, a proposal for how Canada can boldly strike out on a rapid energy transition based firmly on principles of social and environmental justice and progressive coalition building. The Leap Manifesto proposes that Canada “can transition to a renewable-based economy in way that changes our economy for the better – achieving meaningful justice for First Nations, creating more and better jobs, restoring and expanding our social safety net, building a better food system, and reducing economic, gender and racial inequalities.”

Here we reproduce the beginning of the launch with Naomi Klein and a collective reading of the 14th principles of the Manifesto. Enjoy!
