Time's Running Out
How can we
Change is possible by asking new questions, educating ourselves, and proposing new solutions to broken systems. That's why Engineers Without Borders raised questions on issues like climate change, innovation, and Canadian aid from young Canadians who want to be initiators of real change.
COP27 promised action on climate debt, but little progress has been made. We are far from achieving our global target of limiting global temperature increase to 1.5°C. Not only are we facing potentially $1.7 trillion in annual economic consequences by 2050 as a result, but the ecological and human cost will be out of control.
Seeing our government meet their promised commitment of $5.3 billion in climate contributions is more important than ever.
We need Canadian support for the Loss and Damage Fund at COP28, and transparency around how the balance will be dispersed by 2026.
We are asking future leaders and groundbreakers across the country to think about new ways to improve Canada's effectiveness to eradicate global poverty and take actions to strengthen our contribution.
We want to change the status quo on the most important global topics impacting us today, and into the future, such as gender equality, climate change adaptation, innovation for development, public/private partnerships, and finance for development.
We have the power to change the way Canada aids the world and it starts here!
