Everyone involved in the RAVEN project wants New Brunswick to transition to a green (sustainable, low-carbon) economy. We are interested in how this can happen in rural communities in the province.
Extreme weather events are becoming more common across New Brunswick, with many rural communities experiencing flooding and storm surges. Rural activists and local public sector organizations are working on adapting to these and related changes in their communities and regions. Some are also actively mitigating climate change by taking steps to reduce their carbon footprint.
Among the many activities RAVEN is engaged in under this theme, two are central:
- We joined CRED-NB – the Coalition for Responsible Energy Development in New Brunswick to advocate for nuclear-free renewable energy
- Ending our dependence on fossil fuels: the Divest UNB and Divest STU campaigns.
