What's happening this Earth Week/Day in the lower mainland?
While we should do our best for the Earth every day and not just on one day or for one week, Earth Week is a time to bring to light global issues of climate change, pollution, and unsustainable development, as well as a chance to gather and take collective action together.
Here are just a few of the things happening this Earth Week in the lower mainland but we encourage you to check out what's happening in your area and get involved!
