Our friends at Divest WR are launching a project to create eight food forests in partnership with faith communities across Waterloo Region. Learn more here - a video recording from the launched event on Tuesday March 30 can be found below.
UPDATE: We had a great conversation, with over 140 people in attendance virtually. Highlights included the fantastic presentations by Christine Boyle and Chris Fletcher, and the many wonderful audience questions. The recording for the full event is now available on Youtube. The climate science presentation by Chris Fletcher is also available as a separate video.
Join us Monday, February 22nd at 7pm for an evening with Christine Boyle - a city councilor and United Church Minister in Vancouver and a driving force for climate action by faith communities and municipal governments. Learn more about how you can help build a just, safe climate future here in Waterloo Region. Co-hosted by Faith Climate Justice WR and 50by30 Waterloo Region, this event will bring together people of faith and goodwill and be a space to catalyze further faith-led climate justice action here in our region. Register or find out more on our Eventbrite page.
We joined with many other local climate organizations as part of the Shoe Strike in Waterloo Town Square, to raise awareness about both the need for concrete climate action, as well as the significant number of people who are currently without shelter in the Region. The event was organized by 50 by 30, Fridays for Future, Unsheltered Campaign, and Divest Waterloo. While the silent protest with intentionally-limited attendance was a contrast with the large climate rally in Waterloo last year, we thought it was a great way to raise awareness during these difficult times.
