You're Invited: Canadian Green Events + Global Green Actions

Green Neighbours 21 is a grassroots, action-oriented group of people living in Ward 21 area of Toronto (and beyond) in Ontario, Canada, who are working together to respond to climate change and other environmental issues.

As an environmental group, Ward 21 (St. Paul’s) residents of Green Neighbours 21 have been actively installing solar energy projects on their own roofs for years.

 CLIMATE REALITY PROJECT

September 14-15

“A worldwide event to broadcast the reality of the climate crisis.

It will consist of a new multimedia presentation created by Al Gore and delivered once per hour for 24 hours, in every time zone around the globe.

Each hour people living with the reality of climate change will connect the dots between recent extreme weather events — including floods, droughts and storms — and the man-made pollution that is changing our climate.

Join our project to reveal the complete truth about the climate crisis and watch the live stream on www.climaterealityproject.org starting at 7pm CT on September 14.

Make a short video about how climate change is impacting you, and we will show select entries on September 14 and 15 during the live stream of 24 Hours of Reality.

An ad that tells you about 24 Hours of Reality will be running twice an hour, 24 hours a day on the CBS screen in Times Square” (New York, US).”

24 Hours of Reality will focus the world’s attention on the full truth, scope, scale and impact of the climate crisis. To remove the doubt. Reveal the deniers. And catalyze urgency around an issue that affects every one of us.

Al Gore Chairman of the Climate Reality Project
