The world has changed in extraordinary ways over the last few weeks. And with it, nearly every aspect of our lives.
There is uncertainty. We are worried, anxious, at times afraid.
But in the midst of the unprecedented upheaval caused by the global COVID-19 pandemic, we are also seeing the best of our shared humanity.
From the front line workers putting in long, hard days to keep us safe, to citizens stepping up to make the sacrifices needed for their neighbours’ and our most vulnerable people’s sake, to the groups and individuals leading new ways to connect in times of social isolation — we are seeing a collective pull toward a more caring society.
We are seeing hope. We are seeing determination.
Determination to get through this pandemic together. And determination to come out of it with households, neighbourhoods, communities and a province that is more resilient, interconnected, fair, and better prepared to ensure the safety, security, and well being of all.
The Conservation Council welcomes this opportunity to re-imagine our society, the ways we are dependent on one another, and the responsibilities we have to each other. And as we get through this and look toward recovery and rebuilding, we’d like to share with you some ways that you can stay healthy, positive, and begin the journey to a more resilient environment, economy, and province.
