The Green Economy Network (GEN) will be hosting its first public event May 24 in Windsor, Ontario to introduce GEN’s main ideas to citizens in that community who are interested in steering the Canadian economy in a greener, more sustainable and equitable direction.
GEN is comprised of more than 20 labour, social justice and environmental groups working together to promote public transit and high speed rail, renewable energy, and building retrofits to foster good green job growth while cutting greenhouse gases that cause climate change.
CUPE has been a member since GEN was established in 2008.
The Windsor event will feature speakers from both the national and local stage, and will be held at the David Suzuki Public School in Windsor, a state-of-the-art, LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) platinum building.
The public meeting will take place Thursday, May 24 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., preceded by a tour of the school’s environmental features at 6:00 p.m. for those who are interested.
The event hopes to draw a diverse range of activists from Windsor and the surrounding area to build on GEN’s platforms and advance GEN’s ideas in Windsor through community support and action.
