Event Details

This month we launched the Climate Solutions Innovation Forum, a new multi-year program that highlights newer innovative environmental nonprofits who share the story to inspire emerging leaders and/or to expose seasoned leaders to new ways of affecting change and reaching new audiences. We’ll shine a light on less traditional policy-oriented NGOs, youth led organizations as well as recently emerged culturally-focused ENGOs mostly at the fringes of the mainstream.

This first CSIF session features Farmers for Climate Solutions, a farmer-led national coalition working to scale up climate solutions in agriculture. FCS advances policy proposals, programming and other strategic initiatives to support farmers and ranchers in the face of climate change and encourage the adoption of low emissions, high resilience practices. FCS is made up of 29 farming organization members, representing over 20,000 farmers across Canada.  

In this presentation, three FCS staff will share a brief introduction to FCS’ origin story, work streams, and the unique, highly collaborative, and farmer-led approaches that FCS employs to bring together agricultural producers and organizations, often with diverging views, to work towards solutions to climate change.

After sharing the inspiring FCS story and the secrets of their success presenters will engage in a lively Q and A.

*Please note, all registrants will be provided with a link and password to the recording and presentation slides following the session. The recording will be available for 60 days.
