: Building a Community Response to Climate Change

PF 4259, University of Calgary
Organizations such as the World Bank, International Energy Agency, Pricewaterhouse Cooper, and the UN all warn that we have a limited time (about 15 years) to transition to a zero-carbon society if we are to avoid serious climate change and minimize its impacts on communities (climate refugees, climate destabilization, growing food scarcity, health, extinction of species). But there is much that citizens, communities, and governments can do to avoid the worst impacts and to build resilience.

: TINY BEAST COLLECTIVE : PRESENTS : Wake Up! A profile of Positive Force DC (1991) + Positive Force More than a Witness ( 2014)

CommunityWise Resource Centre
Punk activist collective Positive Force DC emerged in 1985, rising from the creative, politically charged ferment of DC punk’s Revolution Summer. Born in a dynamic local scene sparked by Bad Brains, Minor Threat, and Rites of Spring, a handful of young activists also drew inspiration from UK anarcho-punks Crass and the original “Positive Force” band Seven Seconds to become one of the most long-lasting and influential exponents of punk politics.
