Welcome to Green 13
Green 13 is a new, grassroots community environmental group operating in Ward 13 in Toronto. The group was formed following a very successful Earth Hour candlelight walk through Bloor West Village in 2008. More than 500 people attended the walk and numerous businesses participated by turning off or down their lights for the hour.
In 2009, walks were held in Bloor West Village, The Junction and High Park to mark Earth Hour.
Green 13 intends to educate and advocate for positive changes to ensure the protection of our environment. Some of the ideas we have been and will be focusing on include: Organizing regular community meetings to discuss key issues impacting our environment both locally and globally
Participating in city-wide environmental events Organizing support for Community Right to Know legislation Creating a series of community events around Earth Hour 2009 to involve even more residents and businesses Engaging schools to encourage youth involvement.
To successfully implement these and other ideas we need your help! For more information and to get involved, please contact Christopher Holcroft at 416-760-8557, Chris_Holcroft@yahoo.com. Thank you
