Ontario is a pioneer in green energy in North America. We want the planet to take notice. On September 24, join us for Ontario's first Green Energy Field Day, a grassroots surge that begins in your community and builds.
Green Energy Field Day
Let's Celebrate Ontario's Clean Energy Revolution
On Saturday September 24th, all across the province, Ontarians are celebrating the early successes of our emerging clean energy economy, the thousands of jobs it's created, and the hope that's building for a cleaner, greener, more prosperous future for Ontario.
It's part of 350.org's Moving Planet, a global day of action with thousands of events around the world, highlighting the urgent need for government action to move beyond fossil fuels and solve the climate crisis. Ontario is already moving forward on clean energy. Together, we'll celebrate our progress and call on our politicians to keep moving Ontario forwards.
What is Moving Planet and the Green Energy Field Day all about?
Over 2,000 events worldwide with one unified message: Moving Beyond Fossil Fuels.
Events large and small where we’ll be moving on bicycles, unicycles, kayaks, and on foot to represent our commitment to moving beyond fossil fuels.
A global rally for solutions to climate change at all levels of government.
On 24 September, millions of people across the globe are getting moving beyond fossil fuels as a part of Moving Planet. People are getting moving in nearly every country on earth by participating in bike rallies, marches, and many other creative demonstrations.
There are thousands of events taking place around the world today, including hundreds of rallies across India, Brazil and the United States, a bike-powered concert in Hamburg, Germany, a multi-day march against coal in Andhra Pradesh, India, and much, much more.
Our actions today aren't just about getting moving in a sustainable way on our bikes and on foot, they are also about demanding our politicians follow our lead in taking action to move beyond fossil fuels and safeguard our future.
Between international deadlock and increasingly severe weather, the time has come to lead the charge ourselves towards solutions to climate change.
Climate movement is broader than ever before: Scientists, religious leaders, indigenous groups, small business owners, women’s and civil rights groups are all joining the fight.
This is the natural reaction to years of inaction on the climate crisis.
We call on our elected leaders to:
Stand with climate science and commit to moving away from fossil fuels.
Work towards solutions to climate change at all levels of government: from opening new bike lanes to shutting down dirty coal plants worldwide.
Join us in embracing a carbon-free future: replace coal plants and oil rigs with wind turbines and solar panels.
