The Optimistic Environmentalist Surprising Progress Towards a Bright Green Future
with David R. Boyd
David is from Pender Island and will be cycling to North Saanich from the ferry to join us for our Earth Day Special. All too often we are bombarded by bad news about the environment, and the good news is often overlooked or under-reported. Yet there are remarkable reasons for hope, from the recovery of endangered species to the explosive growth of renewable energy. Join award-winning author David R. Boyd for a global tour of success stories that will lift your hearts and inspire you to act.
Protecting your health
BC Greens recognize that airborne illnesses and pollutants pose a significant health risk to everyone, especially the young, elderly, and immunocompromised, while caregivers, healthcare professionals, and support staff come into regular contact with vulnerable persons. When choosing venues, BC Greens prioritize outdoor spaces, and indoor spaces with good ventilation. In closed indoor spaces, we encourage attendees to wear well-fitting masks (N95, KN95, or KF94), especially during the respiratory-illness season.
Creating safe spaces
The BC Green Party is committed to providing an environment free of discrimination and harassment, where all individuals are treated with respect and dignity, can contribute fully and have equal speaking opportunities. To support this commitment, all event attendees will be expected to follow the standards of our Safe Spaces Participant's Guide.
