Sierra Club BC works to defend B.C.’s wild places and species, within the urgent context of climate change. We advocate for a rapid shift away from fossil fuels to a low carbon, equitable economy. We work to inspire British Columbians to value nature and to defend it. In particular, we focus on children and youth to foster environmental literacy and to encourage the environmental leaders of tomorrow. Sierra Club BC relies on science-based research and peaceful, democratic means to advocate for change.
