Global climate strike

Large greve climat

FECHIMM invites all members of housing co-operatives along with the public to participate in large numbers in the Global climate strike, to be held tomorrow (September 27th) in Montreal. We meet at noon at the foot of the George-Étienne Cartier monument on Mount Royal.

The urgency of climate change requires strong action and housing co-operatives intend to contribute to the ecological transition needed to contain global warming. The highly worrying nature of the environmental situation led the members of the Federation to create an ecological transition committee at the last AGM.

The development of ecological transition models for co-ops as well as awareness and training of members are among the goals of the committee which will hold its first meeting on October 3rd.

Take part in our survey on the ecological transition

To prepare the ecological transition committee’s action plan, FECHIMM wants to know your interests and needs on this issue. If you are a member of a housing co-operative, we invite you to take three minutes to complete our short survey.
