Giving Tuesday - Giving Hope

Climate change is the biggest challenge of our times, yet world leaders aren't taking action fast enough.

Cities and regions are leading the transition to 100% renewable energy by 2050. And we're right there with them, building a model to advance climate action at the community level. Through grassroots organizing, we're bringing people from all walks of life together to use our collective power to not only build powerful campaigns, but win them.

This movement starts with you. Giving Tuesday is your day to support and be a champion for the issues that matter to you. By giving the gift of hope for a better future, your donation will help us reach more people so that more cities and regions not only commit to going 100% renewable by 2050, but create tangible action plans to achieve it, too.

When we come together, we win. You can make 100% renewable energy by 2050 a reality, starting today.

Full house in the Miners' Hall Rossland to watch ALL IN

ALL IN Rossland Success

We did our first showing of ALL IN at the Miners' Hall in Rossland, and it was packed! Tickets sold out before we even officially opened the doors, plus a solid 30 folks opted to sit on the floor or lean against the walls to take it the show.

This picture from Ashley Voykin tells exactly that story:

People in Rossland were stoked to watch an awesome ski movie!

So if you live in proximity to Nelson, what are you waiting for?? Get online and reserve your tickets today for a guaranteed seat :).

Thank you to the Rossland Sustainability Commission for their invaluable contributions, our volunteers who make these events possible, Out of the Cellar for selling advance tickets for us, and our sponsors for donating prizes: Powderhound, The Josie Hotel, Madhu Collective, Prestige Resort, Rossvegas, Butch Boutry Ski Shop, and RED Mountain Resort.

Stay tuned for more snow themed events in the new year!
