Our Values

CANWM has a constitution, which includes these values. You don't have to agree with all of them, but they show what we think is important:


"CANWM members are aware that:

  • Humanity is part of life and the eco-systems which sustain life

  • We need to live in a way which values and protects life

CANWM members support:

  • Fairness and justice, especially for the growing number of victims of climate change, locally and globally

  • Equality

  • Community and cooperation

In campaigning for a fossil-free future, CANWM will be:

  • Non-violent and non-aggressive

  • Caring and supportive

  • Open and inclusive

  • Active

  • Positive

  • Democratic

  • Rational, using the evidence about causes and effects of climate change

  • Pragmatic (not dogmatic) and applying the “precautionary principle” where evidence is not clear
