Innovative approaches and partnerships for community-led and systems changes.
Working with partners to co-create, test, and amplify ways to advance environmental, social, and economic justice.
Current emergent initiatives at MakeWay include:
Building momentum for a national coalition against environmental racism, public policy dialogue, and mobilizing funds to address the fact that across Canada, communities of colour are far more likely to experience the health impact of toxic dumps, polluting industries, tainted water, and climate change.
Space must be created for womxn to nurture processes that are care based, healing-centered, and built upon the understanding of how to strategically shift systems for long-lasting change. At the intersection of feminism and environmental justice, this Collective supports and connects women-identified and gender diverse changemakers to advance innovative climate solutions.
While philanthropy has contributed a great deal to supporting systems and policy approaches to the climate crisis, there is an unrealized opportunity for philanthropy to invest more in behaviour change initiatives that play a vital role in the social transformation needed to tackle the biggest threat of our time.
