Earth Day April 22, 2013

This Monday April 22 2013 is Earth Day.

The global theme for Earth Day 2013: The Face of Climate Change.
For many, climate change seems like a remote problem, but the reality is that it’s already affecting people, animals and places around the world. As these Faces of Climate Change begin to multiply, others are multiplying too: the faces of those stepping up to do something about it.

Here in Calgary there are a number of events celebrating Earth Day and showing how we as Calgarians can make choices which minimize our impact on the environment. A family friendly Down to Earth Day is being held this Sunday on International avenue.

Environmental awareness is an important component of YMCA Calgary’s Global Initiatives department and helps us to continue to develop global awarness through the programs and services offered by YMCA Calgary.
