To celebrate Earth Day, the Canadian Association of University Teachers urges you to join millions around the globe and participate in the March for Science.
The March for Science is a celebration of science. We get together as a diverse nonpartisan group fighting for robustly funded and publicly communicated science as a pillar of human freedom and prosperity. We call for political leaders and policy makers to develop evidence-based policies in the public interest.
Earth Day is also an occasion to reflect on climate change and the implications and challenges of tackling the problem. Academic staff has a special responsibility and a unique opportunity to be part of the solution. There are practical, concrete actions that you and your staff associations can take to reduce the threat.
Across Canada and the globe, staff associations and researchers are building expertise. On campus, action against climate change is focusing on three main fronts:
- Reducing the carbon footprint of campuses
- Teaching and Research
- Political Advocacy
Canadians view academic staff with extraordinary legitimacy. This credibility lends you both power and the responsibility to forcefully present the case for confronting climate change.
This Earth Day, walk the walk, or talk the talk, but let’s do something.
