Green Economy Network goes public in Windsor May 24

The Green Economy Network (GEN) will be holding its first public event May 24 in Windsor, Ontario to introduce GEN’s main ideas to citizens in that community who are interested in steering the Canadian economy in a greener, more sustainable and equitable direction.

The Windsor District Labour Council and the CAW Windsor Regional Environment Council are co-hosting the GEN meeting.

GEN is comprised of more than 20 labour, social justice and environmental groups working together to promote public transit and high speed rail, renewable energy, and Green building design and energy retrofits to foster good green job growth while cutting greenhouse gases that cause climate change.

The event hopes to draw a diverse range of citizens from Windsor and the surrounding area to build on GEN’s platforms and advance GEN’s ideas through community support and action.

The Windsor event will feature speakers from both the national and local stage, and will be held at the David Suzuki Public School in Windsor, a state-of-the-art, LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) platinum building.

The public meeting will take place Thursday, May 24 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.

The meeting is preceded by a tour of the school’s environmental features at 5:30 p.m.
