Event Description

This year’s Earth Day Parade, scheduled for April 20, 2013, seeks to bring elementary and secondary students together, along with adult allies, for a parade, celebration and day of learning. The event is planned as a celebration gathering with guest speakers, workshops, NGO tents, entertainment and bands. This event will be open to the public but targeted at students and seeks to build on the tremendous success of last year’s event which brought out close to 2000 people. Our hope is to emphasize our desire for urgent action on a variety of issues especially the lack of environmental action, and act as a catalyst for change towards a greener more sustainable future. We will also continue to focus on local issues such as tankers, pipelines and fracking along with efforts to raise awareness about the 1.5 degree threshold scientists use as a climate marker.
