Elizabeth May on the IPCC Report on Climate Change

If you care about our world, and haven’t watched this extraordinary 10 minute speech by @Elizabeth May you need to do so right now…

“The good news is we still have a chance to save ourselves. To save the lives of our children, what would we not do? We as homo sapiens, the clever species, the smart ones, have at most 10 to 12 years to ensure that we stop greenhouse gas emissions. We are stepping up. We are going to rescue everybody…” — Elizabeth May | Youtube | Facebook

Behind the brands

Change the way the food companies do business!

Come join Oxfam UofT for our Behind the Brands campaign that aims to provide people with the information they need to hold the Big 10 to account for what happens in their supply chains. We will have games and treats so stop by and learn about some of the world’s biggest companies and about Oxfam.

Behind the Brands is part of Oxfam’s GROW campaign to help create a world where everyone has enough to eat. Right now, nearly one in eight people on earth go to bed hungry. Sadly, the majority of these people are farmers or farm workers supplying the very food system that is failing them. Yet there is enough food for everyone. That’s an outrage – but we can be the generation that ends this crazy situation!

Date: Thursday, October 25, 2018 at 4 PM – 6 PM
Location: 21 Sussex Ave., Room 403, UofT, downtown Toronto
