We’ve launched a Just Recovery poster campaign and scavenger hunt contest in downtown Stratford! The contest runs until September 18th. Spread the word about the Just Recovery principles to raise awareness. We can build back better from the pandemic, but we must build a movement! Check out all the details below …

The posters and contest are ways to spread the word about our once-in-a-generation opportunity to build back better from the pandemic and create a more resilient, equitable, and sustainable society and economy.

Taking part in the Just Recovery poster contest is easy. Look for all six posters in the windows of downtown businesses, take photos, and share them on Facebook or Instagram. Tag @ClimateMomentum and use the hashtags #JustRecoveryForAll and #JustRecoveryStratford. You could also tag the local business!

The contest closes on September 18th when two random winners will be drawn from all those who shared the posters on Facebook and Instagram. The prizes are “Downtown Dollars” gift certificates that can be used at any downtown Stratford business. Many thanks to the Stratford City Centre BIA and individual donors for the donated Downtown Dollars certificates.

Find, photograph, and share the six different Just Recovery posters that feature the 6 Just Recovery Principles endorsed by over 500 organizations across Canada:

  1. Put people’s health and wellbeing first, no exceptions.
  2. Strengthen the social safety net and provide relief directly to people.
  3. Prioritize the needs of workers and communities.
  4. Build resilience to prevent future crises.
  5. Build solidarity and equity across communities, generations, and borders.
  6. Uphold Indigenous rights and work in partnership with Indigenous peoples.

Also sign the e-petition to tell the Prime Minister and Cabinet Ministers to develop a recovery plan that leaves no one behind: Tell Trudeau’s Green Recovery Task Force to deliver a Just Recovery for all
