GreenDrinks NewWest, Tuesday, April 8, 2014: Defining a Citizens' Agenda
Date: Tuesday, Apr 8, 2014
Location: Heritage Grill Restaurant, 447 Columbia St, New Westminster
7:00pm Guest Speakers: Gene Desfor, activist with NoJetsTO, and Professor Emeritus, Faculty of Environmental Studies, York University
When Community Issues Challenge Federal Policies: How the NoJetsTO campaign defined a public agenda that included far more than the level of noise generated by jets to win the support of a majority of City Councillors.
Meet up with others concerned about our common future!
There is no agenda, but always a topic up for discussion, whether its green buildings, sustainable energy, organic gardening, or something else entirely.
Attendees are welcome to bring business cards, brochures, info sheets, magazines and newsletters to put on a table for people to take away with them. But they also have to make sure to take whatever is left when they leave.
