Workshop 1: Exploring How Heat, Wildfires, and Floods Impact Workers

October 4, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Interested in understanding how climate justice and worker justice intersect? Want to organize your workplace but don’t know where to begin? As temperatures rise, workers do, too!

We are hosting a four-part workshop series to connect with workers, hear from community organizers, and promote our climate and labour justice digital toolkit. These workshops are open to anyone interested in joining to learn more about our campaign, share stories, and ask questions about your rights at work!

Our first session, Exploring How Extreme Heat, Wildfires, and Floods Impact Workers: How Standing in the Walk-in Freezer is a Workplace Issue is happening just days before World Day for Decent Work. In light of this, we will be discussing how decent work is not just a labour justice issue, it is about addressing various intersections including climate justice.

In this first session, we will hear about how extreme weather impacts workers at work and beyond. Our guest speaker, Izzy Adachi, will speak on these firsthand experiences and make the intersection between climate justice and labour justice, come to light! These are not separate struggles but intertwined injustices.

Together, through informal conversations, we will share experiences of how climate change impacts us and strategize ways to move forward as a collective.

If interested, please check out our digital toolkit which includes some basic information that will be covered in our workshop series.
