Summer is always a busy time of the year, especially when there’s so many events happening across a city as big and diverse as Toronto. While we’ve been quiet for a little while, we’re gearing up for something BIG.
THIS IS AN INVITATION TO CHANGE EVERYTHING
World leaders are heading to New York City for a UN summit on the climate crisis. UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon is urging governments to support an ambitious global agreement to dramatically reduce global warming pollution. In response to this challenge 350.org has called for North America’s largest climate march on Sunday, September 21st to coincide with the summit.
In collaboration with Toronto350 and Emily Hunter, #GreenPeopleTO is aiming to bring as many people from Toronto as possible to attend. We are organizing buses from Toronto to New York the weekend of September 19-21 to attend the People’s Climate March alongside our usual SUP motto of meeting people and sharing ideas/voices.
The buses will leave Toronto in the evening on Friday, September 19th, and depart New York on the evening Sunday, September 21st – maximizing our weekend away while negating any time missed from work or classes. We have optional accommodations available for Saturday night (Friday and Sunday night will be spent on the bus), or you can book your own.
To change everything, we need everyone on board.
Sunday, September 21 in New York City. Join us.
Tickets are available here through Toronto350.
*If you would like to be seated with people you’ve met at one of our events, please note #GreenPeopleTO or SUP as your group.
DO YOU WANT TO BE A CLIMATE LEADER?
We are currently recruiting Climate Leaders for the bus trip. Climate Leaders will be responsible for 10 people on the bus, informing them on how to stay connected to the climate movement and help be a mentor and support person to them while on the trip. This is an amazing opportunity to connect with Toronto’s environmentalist movement, learn critical event management and activist skills, play a critical role in one of the largest climate demonstrations in history, and have an awesome time.
