Our beginnings

On November 29, 2015, one hundred or so residents of the Powell River region marched from Willingdon Beach to the Patricia Theatre in solidarity with a global demonstration that day in support of the Paris Climate Conference which was due to begin the following week.

At the end of the march, we joined an equal number of people who came to watch Naomi Klein’s movie, This Changes Everything.

That day was the beginning of the qathet Climate Alliance.
