Earth Hour in Riverside – Recap

Last Saturday we celebrated WWF’s Earth Hour in Riverside with environmental themed activities from local businesses leading up to the lights off moment.  There were performances from the Etobicoke School of the Arts GLO show choir and  the Lucas Stagg Band. And wow was it a beautiful community celebration.

Riverside community really rallied behind this.  Thank-you so much for your interest and participation is this global initiative to help our planet

Please  enjoy the video below with photos from the many activities throughout the day including:

  • Lantern Making Workshop from Riverside Green Initiative at OMA Chiropractic
  • Milk Carton Paper Making workshop with mixed media artist janet f potter at Dimensions Custom Framing
  • Environmental themed street-level artwalk starting at macFAB featuring Artist Network Artists
  • Yoga by Candlelight at energyXchange
  • Earth Hour Concert  main stage outside the Ralph Thornton Community Center with special guest David Miller, President and CEO of WWF-Canada.

Action on climate change doesn’t stop just because Earth Hour is over.  Like you, we are committed to continuous improvement.
