Climate Strike Together: Thornbury

12:30pm - 1:30pm
Location: Thornbury Town Hall

A gathering of youth, parents, and any other interested community members, who want to demonstrate their concern for climate change and show support for the global climate strikes happening around the world on Friday September 27. This is in support for the FridaysFor Future movement inspired by Greta Thunberg. We are also asking the Town Council to pass a motion declaring a climate emergency. Many municipalities in Ontario have already done this, including Grey Highlands and West Grey. Here is some info on this issue. Climate Emergency Declarations Worldwide, 935 governments of all levels have declared a Climate Emergency according to the International Climate Emergency Forum (ICEF) as of July 2019. Included in that number is the Government of Canada, along with 447 Canadian Municipalities. The list below indicates the Ontario municipalities who have declared a climate emergency, several of which are upper tier. The significance of municipalities declaring a climate emergency is as follows: Creates pressure on higher levels of government to act. Encourages other municipalities to respond to climate change by leading by example. Sparks local action through education, mitigation and resilience-building. Educates elected officials and staff about the global climate emergency.
