There’s a new campaign tackling climate change in Canada: Farmers for Climate Solutions

March 1, 2020

Any conversation about climate change in 2020 must include agriculture.

Farmers for Climate Solutions is a new grassroots campaign led by a coalition of farmers and organizations across Canada to make agriculture part of the climate change solution. SeedChange is thrilled to be a founding member of this coalition!

Agriculture is one of the first sectors to feel the impacts of climate change. We also know that fossil-fuel based agricultural inputs contribute to the climate crisis. But the good news: many farmers are leading the way towards climate-friendly agriculture. Agriculture is one of the most promising sectors for delivering fast and effective climate solutions. With Farmers for Climate Solutions, we are advocating for agricultural policies and programs that help farmers mitigate and adapt to climate change, and support the spread of low-input, low-emissions agricultural systems.

What can I do to grow the movement?
