March and Block Party for Climate - Sep 23

On this global day of action, Sustainabiliteens is hosting a march and a block party for #PeopleNotProfit and a Just Transition. The march calls for bold policy action, with a focus on Indigenous sovereignty and a just transition for workers. The following block party will be a communal climate action extravaganza, bringing community members together through discussion circles, tangible actions, free food, and live entertainment. The event will also spotlight transformative organizations, inspiring speakers, and local businesses. This community-based mass mobilization aims to bring people of diverse backgrounds and viewpoints together to learn, connect, share ideas, and take action toward a Just Transition. The objective of creating a more just and sustainable society is one that requires learning and collaboration on a large-scale; the block party format is an attempt to build this community of collaboration and to reinstill hope and joy in the movement, all while pressuring those in power to prioritize climate justice.

WHEN: Friday, September 23rd, 2-6pm
WHERE: March begins at Coal Harbour Park and ends at Vancouver Art Gallery, where the block party takes place
