Green New Deal Town Hall - Wolfville, Nova Scotia
Wednesday, Jun 19, 7pm
Acadia University , Wolfville, Nova ScotiaHosted by: Dept. of Community Development, Acadia University
Join us for a community/regional town hall meeting to help shape the vision for a Green New Deal for Canada. This will be a facilitated participatory session focused on idea sharing and dialogue in small groups. The Dept. of Community Development, with support from the Town of Wolfville and a range of other groups and individuals is working to bring this event to life.
This event is one of many Green New Deal town halls being held in communities across the country this spring. The conversation is being led from the ground up, bringing together people from all walks of life to discuss a vision for a new economy for Canada: one that rapidly cuts greenhouse gas emissions, creates millions of green jobs, makes sure no one gets left behind, and sees the full implementation of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission recommendations. The input from these town halls will be used to inform a vision for a Green New Deal for all for Canada being put together by a national coalition of NGOs.
The Town Hall takes place in the Fountain Commons (second floor) at Acadia, which is the brick building in the middle of campus, straight up hill from the large white administration building. Enter on the downhill side. It is building number 26 on Crowell Drive on the Acadia Campus map at: https://bit.ly/2QGwkrO
