Climate change affects all of us and we all have to do something about it. That can be a daunting task and it’s hard to know where to start. That’s why we organized the Great Climate Race, a walking/ running event series that enables participants to crowdfund for local renewable energy projects. Its a fun way to do something meaningful in your own community. This year is the second annual 10k and 2.5k walk/ run in Vancouver + international virtual race.

Partnership with First Nations

It is very important to us that our events respect local indigenous communities. We see The Great Climate Race as an opportunity to share the history and context of event locations and for meaningful partnerships with First Nations governments and companies. Our second annual event is happening in Coast Salish Territory. Event participants will learn place names and stories from signs on the race route itself and local First Nations leaders will play key roles in opening and closing ceremonies.
