NEW REPORT URGES IMMEDIATE BIODIVERSITY
ACTION IN CANADA

Our new report on the state of biodiversity loss in Canada warns that if Canadian policy makers don’t take drastic action, the country’s iconic species like the polar bear and the loon could be lost forever. As a 24-point action agenda, it suggests new strategies for informing Canadians about nature: designing cities with natural connections and using new technology and the arts to talk about protecting lands, waters and wildlife. It also includes bold asks for policymakers, like the creation of new protected areas, more partnerships with Indigenous Peoples and enforcement of species at risk legislation.

Co-authored by Women for Nature following our conversation series exploring biodiversity loss in Canada, Biodiversity Conservation: A Call for Action for Canadian Decision-Makers argues that a loss of species is hard to notice if you can’t name the different plants or animals in your own backyard.

Changing the Conversation


We develop meaning and purpose through sharing our stories and in conversations

Some believe we have yet to begin the necessary conversations, while others argue there have been ongoing discussions over many decades that have not been heard. Some stories, such as growth have become so dominant, they have eliminated space about other perspectives. Changing the conversation is about re-enlarging public space and re-engaging different generations in virtual real-time e-Dialogues.

This intergenerational space is an experimental opportunity to rethink and reframe modern day challenges relevant to Canadian communities, to co-create innovative and scalable solutions. Governed by the principles of Socratic dialogue, this space hosts virtual real-time e-Dialogues and lead virtual peer-to-peer learning exchanges. It is also a repository for learning, best practices, tools and methodologies—a collaborative space to join or start a conversation.
