SGC Admin: Happy Earth Day Folks… there are so many ways to help clean up and keep our environment healthy… The David Suzuki Foundation wants your input… 🙂 You may also like to check out the following link on“Top 10 ways you can stop climate change“
Tell us your climate solutions
Dear DSF Community,
With an international agreement on climate action and so many new opportunities arising in Canada at the federal level, change is in the air.
At the David Suzuki Foundation, we’re evaluating where we can have the most impact.
Since the success of our work relies on you — to make your lifestyle more sustainable, to influence decision-makers and to organize in your communities — we want to know what would most inspire you.
We’re considering focusing on better transit, renewable energy or electric vehicles — or something else you recommend. Of course, all these things (and more) are necessary for a stable climate and a more secure future for all of us. But if we focus, we can have more impact.
SGC Admin: From our inbox to you from The David Suzuki Foundation… September Event…

SGC Admin: From our inbox to you: The Blue Dot Tour becomes the Blue Dot Movement:
On April 19, let’s connect from coast to coast
Six months ago, we had no idea how big this would get. What started as the Blue Dot Tour in the fall of 2014 has now grown into the Blue Dot movement, and it’s all thanks to people like you!
Almost 70,000 people just like you have joined us at BlueDot.ca, including more than 14,500 volunteers who’ve signed up to take action in their communities and ensure that everyone has the right to fresh air, clean water and healthy food.
So what’s the next step? How do we keep this momentum building? And how do we show all of Canada just how motivated and committed we are to this vision?
By coming together all across the country.
On Sunday, April 19, join us as we stand together in a national day of action called Connect the Blue Dots.
Organizers in communities across the country are hosting events big and small to celebrate this movement. In living rooms and community spaces, parks and outdoor places, everyone can join in by connecting with friends across the street and across the country, all committed to protecting the people and places we love.
In more than 30 communities, organized Blue Dot volunteers have already helped convince their local leaders to pass municipal declarations recognizing environmental rights. This is real progress, and it’s worth celebrating!
There’s strength in numbers. This national day of action is a powerful way to show Canadians that lasting change happens when everyday people come together.
