The message Is clear, young people everywhere are calling their elders out: “Your house is on fire! What are you doing about it?” “Global warming is real, it is human caused and immediate action is required to avert climate disaster.”
And for the week of September 20th – 28th they have instigated what will most likely be the largest ever global uprising of voices in marches, teach-ins, strikes and protests. A coalition of local climate action organizations is putting together a calendar of events in the GTA for that week. We urge you to participate in as many ways as you can.
Drawdown Toronto members will be participating actively in all these actions, designed to catalyze action by governments, institutions, companies and individuals.
Our message is also clear: It is NOT too late. Global warming CAN be reversed. And everyone needs to know it. This day will be an inspiring day of hope and resilience.
“Project Drawdown” is the most comprehensive answer to the question, “What should we do?” In fact, the 100 solutions investigated by a coalition of researchers are sufficient to ensure that humanity turns back from the brink of disaster, and begins lowering the concentration of greenhouse gases by 2050 (that’s the “drawdown point.”)
So, as the finale to a week of extraordinary action events, Drawdown Toronto will be hosting a “Solutions Summit” on Saturday September 28th from 10am until 6pm at OCAD University. You are welcome to attend all or part of the day.
Speakers include: Allie Rougeot(Fridays for Future), Malkeet Sandhu(David Suzuki Foundation), Owen Goltz(Riverdale Farm)
