Road to Resilience

Manitoba can meet the goals set out in the IPCC’s 1.5 report.

This means we need to heat all of our buildings (old and new) affordably without natural gas.

Manitoba’s Road to Resilience was developed by the Climate Action Team (CAT) with input from other subject matter experts, including SBM, and interested members of the public. They want communities to read it, discuss it and add to future updates.

Manitoba’s Road to Resilience is an achievable and concrete pathway to a climate resilient future. It lays out what is needed in order for us to feed, shelter, transport and produce electricity without the use of fossil fuels, with foundational chapters on nature, green jobs and the human impacts of climate change.

Under the pretext of being “practical,” many governments have chosen not to publicly discuss the urgency and scale of work required to adequately address the climate crisis. That means it is up to the community to find a pathway forward, and Manitoba’s Road to Resilience can provide the footholds.

Finding alternative ways to shelter ourselves without fossil fuels is critical in reducing emissions in our province.

You are invited to read the Road to Resilience, advocate for further change and provide feedback to help make this vision a reality.
