Online #GreenandJustRecovery Town Hall with Surrey federal, provincial, municipal representatives

COMMUNITY organizations Surrey for Future, the Climate Clock, SPARK Foundation, Force of Nature Alliance and For Our Kids will be hosting an online #GreenandJustRecovery Town Hall on Thursday, June 25.

Surrey youth who are taking the lead in fighting for climate justice in our city will co-host the Town Hall. They will pose questions to local representatives Ken Hardie, MP for Fleetwood-Port Kells, Jinny Sims, MLA for Surrey-Panorama, and Surrey City Councillor Steven Pettigrew. Community members will also have the opportunity to submit questions about the #GreenandJustRecovery.

The federal and provincial governments are putting billions into the economic recovery from COVID-19, giving us a huge opportunity to make change.

A #GreenandJustRecovery would focus these investments into renewable energy projects, training and transition for those who work in high-carbon industries, and health, education, and food support systems that recognize the fundamental value of those systems and the dignity of those who work in them.
