Local Group Agreement

Future Ground Network supports groups that meet regularly to take action to secure healthier, more viable futures in the areas of climate justice, biodiversity, waste reduction and sustainable systems across so-called Canada. Joining the network means connecting with organizers from other groups to share best practices, find inspiration, and work together to achieve common goals. Learn more here.
