Celebrating Earth Day with hope for the future
On April 22, The City invited Calgarians to participate in a lunch 'n' learn held at the Calgary Public Library downtown location.
Kevin Strange, conservation advocate and Senior Advisor of Conservation Outreach for the Calgary Zoo spoke about the benefits that making small changes to our everyday lives can have for the environment and encouraged attendees to take responsibility for the future on an individual basis.
According to Strange, “if you boost peoples’ sense of hope about conservation and the environment then they’re more likely to take action.”
Strange spoke about what’s currently being done to protect endangered wildlife and what we can do to help ensure the integrity of our environment for the future.
The City encourages Calgarians to get involved in environmental initiatives in their communities and to make every day Earth Day. For more information, visit calgary.ca/footprint.
