Let's take our Fridays For Future Canada online this time around! There is another national strike coming up on Friday, April 3rd. There cannot be large gatherings, we do not want to aid COVID-19's spread in any way. Find out more information about how we're taking it online as a country here. Stay safe, Greenies!
We are passionate about the environment and educating the public on environmental issues, plastic pollution, and climate change.
Climate change is driven by greenhouse gas emissions. We need 1.6 planets to provide enough resources for our consumption and to absorb our waste. By mid-2030, we will need 2 planets (N&E). Currently, we are on track for 4-4.5°C in warming of our planet, but our global target limit to keep climate change at a manageable level is 1.5°C (N&E). Learn more about climate change here.
10,000 tons of plastic enter the Great Lakes annually and double the amount of surface water plastic is present in the Great Lakes compared to the ocean (Ontario Creates). Check out our weekly tips about how you can live more sustainably here.
We are keen to educate the public on these very important issues so that the word can spread and we can demand policies be put in place by our governments, especially in our beautiful Lake Huron area. Please contact us if you would like us to present to your group.
