On SATURDAY, MAY 15th from 3-5pm, join us in celebrating Green Neighbours Network’s 1st year as an official non-profit organization, hear about GNN’s vision and plans for the exciting year ahead, and help celebrate our amazing members and volunteers; the individuals, groups, and partners whose passion and energy are making neighbourhoods across the City of Toronto and the GTA greener, healthier, and more sustainable every day.
🌱 Dorte Windmuller from Cliffcrest Butterflyway in Scarborough, will talk about using the power of social media to find volunteers and engage a community to bring back bees, birds and butterflies to the neighbourhood.
🍀 Saba Khan, one of the trio who founded EnviroMuslims in Mississauga, will talk about starting a group with the goal of educating, engaging and empowering the Canadian Muslim community, and the importance of intersectionality in the realm of sustainability.
🌳 Beth Szurpicki, representing CanadaReduces.ca, will talk about how the ‘Reduces’ movement in one downtown Toronto neighbourhood leveraged the power of zero waste to scale up in record time.
🌳 Myrtle Millares from Climate Pledge Collective will share how we can help stop big Canadian Banks from fueling the climate crisis by participating in their Bank Switch campaign.
🌱 Colleen Lynch from ClimateFast’s Kitchen Table Climate Conversations will tell us about this exciting climate conversation program designed to inspire and mobilize in advance of upcoming elections – and how you can get involved.
And afterwards they will answer your questions!
