Climate Walk Organizer Encourages Clean Energy Use
Prince George, B.C. – Northern residents are encouraged to participate in tomorrow’s climate action walk in Prince George.
It’s part of the Global Climate March and happens on the eve of the start of the Paris Climate Summit Monday.
“My purpose in organizing this is getting our government and citizens to listen to our climate scientists on the pressing issue at hand,” says co-organizer Jessy Rajan.
“I wanted Prince George to be part of this global network and this is everyone’s issue, not just Vancouver’s issue, or Paris, London or any of these bigger cities.”
She says the goal of the walk is to push leaders at every level of government to commit to 100% clean energy.
“I would also like to see our government come up with real agreements that we will adhere to. I mean in the past we’ve come out with plans and agreements that haven’t worked out to anything.”
Rajan says the walk starts at 1 p.m. tomorrow at 5th and George Street and notes everyone is invited to participate.
“Anyone who has children or grandchildren and wants to leave a world that’s livable for them I think should be out there because this concerns everybody.”
