Climate Action Week

Visual logo for Climate Action Week - drawing of sun streaked with coloured stripes that reads 'climate action week -- libraries and communities acting together'.

Climate Action Week is returning! Saturday, November 2 – Friday, November 8, 2024 

Join libraries and other GLAM organizations across BC and Ontario to focus on the climate change related challenges and emergencies facing our communities. Our goal is to raise awareness, answer our communities’ growing needs, and articulate clearly that libraries are places to connect people and access resources on climate change.

Climate Action Week (CAW) is hosted by the BC Library Association and driven by libraries and library staff like you! We invite you to share any initiatives you are planning in your organization. We hope this will become an annual initiative in educational and cultural organizations everywhere.

Our Logo

The Climate Action Week logo can have a unique meaning to every person: the haze of wildfire smoke against the sun, sunshine reflecting off of the water, heat distortions rising during a heat wave, or even the shapes of fish or whales! The colours are inspired by the #ShowYourStripes data visualization showing changes in global annual temperatures from 1850-present.
