On Saturday, October 24 from 2pm-4pm, ForOurGrandchildren will be convening at Queen’s Park in Toronto, Ontario to add our voice to the International Day of Climate Action.
We are calling for the support and attendance of all grandparents, parents, and everybody else who wishes to join the movement to stop the climate crisis. Please come to the event, and bring your grandchildren – or other young people – with you, and encourage your friends, family, and colleagues to do the same. There will be music, comedy and other entertainment for them to enjoy. We will be carrying a banner bearing the ForOurGrandchildren name and logo, and we would be delighted if you come by and introduce yourself and participate in our cause.
This very important event at Queen’s Park has been coordinated by the Toronto Climate Campaign as part of the international grassroots effort of an unprecedented scale driven by 350.org. It brings together local organizations and community groups who recognize that we are at a watershed moment in our history: the action – or inaction – of our world leaders at the upcoming Copenhagen Climate Conference will, literally and without exaggeration, determine a major element of the legacy we leave behind to our children and grandchildren.
Help us leave a legacy that will safeguard their future. Queen’s Park: Saturday, October 24, 2009, from 2pm-4pm.
