Today, Earth Day is celebrated around the country, marking the largest environmental event in the world.
Founded in 1990, Earth Day Canada is a national environmental charity, offering free year-round programs to educate and inspire Canadians of all ages, backgrounds and sectors to reach local environmental solutions. Their mission is to foster and celebrate environmental respect, action and respectful behaviour to decrease the impact we have on our planet.
This brings us to Vancouver and its ambitious plans to become the greenest city by 2020, a lofty but attainable goal. This plan permeates through majority of the City’s planning as staff work with Council, residents, businesses, organizations and all levels of government to implement the Greenest City 2020 Action Plan.
Increase city-wide and neighbourhood food assets by a minimum of 50% over 2010 levels
Together, these address areas of carbon, waste and our ecosystems.
