Join 50by30WR for the Global Rally
What: Global Climate Rally: Protect our Environment, Protect our Greenbelt
Where: Willow River Park at the Clock Tower (aka Victoria Park) Map
RSVP: with 50by30WR; with Green Party of Canada
A coalition of environmental and climate groups will stand together for the future of our Earth.
After a summer of smoke, fires, and devastating extreme weather events worldwide we will be calling out all levels of government to pass legislation and recognize the importance of our environment, that acknowledges how interrelated health care, land development, and future jobs are, and takes action to ensure the safety of our future. The lives and livelihoods of millions are being impacted, particularly Black, Indigenous, and racialized communities in Canada and the Global South.
On September 16th, we rally, we march, and we demand change!
We will meet at the Clock Tower in Victoria Park at 2:30 pm
Speakers will start at 3:30 pm until 4:15 pm. Come and listen to climate groups, activists, and environmental advocates from Waterloo Region and surrounding.
Local groups will be at the event to share information about their efforts.
