Over the past few months we’ve been working with a number of partners to pull together a major public event calling for action on global warming. We’re excited today to be able to invite you to get involved!
Bridge to a Cool Planet: Coming together to fight Global Warming, October 24th in Vancouver
The climate talks in Copenhagen this December are crucial — they must lead to an international agreement to stop global warming. This fall we need to come together and, with one voice, call on government to show bold leadership at these talks. On Saturday the 24th, we invite you to come have fun with your friends and neighbors while sending a strong message to Ottawa: make us proud in Copenhagen!
What’s happening in Vancouver on the 24th:
11 am gather on the Cambie Street Bridge!
Noon: parade across the bridge, along Pacific Bvd to Science World – bring your group’s banner, come dressed as your favorite endangered animal or fossil fool!
3 pm: music, food, workshops, advocacy and celebration at Science World — send a personal message to Ottawa, learn something new, enjoy yourself!
7 pm: inspirational speakers, movies at Christ Church Cathedral

We need your help! We’d love your help in making this day a huge success. First volunteer orientation is Monday September 14th at the Western Canada Wilderness Committee offices — 341 Water Street between 5 and 7 pm.http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=129402042157&ref=mf
Can’t make it Monday? Get involved here: http://www.bridgecoolplanet.ca/en/get_involved.php
We need to build a movement! If we are going to achieve the scale of changes needed to stop global warming, everyone is going to have to get involved. Please encourage your organisation, business, church, cultural group and sports team to take part in this day. Invite your friends, colleagues, neighbours and grandparents too. Spread the word! Together we can send a strong message that it is time for action. This is our future, and this is our time to make a difference.
