TRCA Youth Council Online Movie Night: Climate Change

Kate Goodale

Join the TRCA Youth Council for a Climate Change themed movie night where we will be watching Protect Our Winter’s film “Electric Greg” (20 mins).

After the film we will have short presentations from Protect Our Winters (POW) about their work and ongoing 12 Month Climate Challenge and the Ontario Climate Consortium about climate change in our region, and how you can get involved. Finally, we will have a panel discussion (including questions from the audience) with representatives from the Youth Council, POW, and TRCA.

Film: Electric Greg (20 mins)

Record-breaking mountain endurance athlete, Greg Hill, has never shied away from a goal. Through his time spent in the mountains he’s seen the effects of climate change first-hand and came to realize the way he was approaching the mountains was only making the problem worse. Two years ago he changed his approach and set out to climb 100 peaks without burning any fossil fuels. But the question is: will it make a difference?
