Who We Are
We are a group of concerned citizens from Grey Bruce who came together out of mutual concern for the urgency of the climate and biodiversity crisis. The Earth Day Grey Bruce 22 Planning Committee is made up of five volunteers: Doug Cleverley, Doug Crocker, Joachim Ostertag, Noëlle Rancourt and Danuta Valleau.
Our goal is to celebrate Earth Day with a community event that energizes us all to take climate change action, including mitigation, adaptation, and justice.
We acknowledge that we live in the traditional territory of the Saugeen Ojibway Nation and welcome the participation of Indigenous people and groups in the event.
Earth Day Grey Bruce endorses the following non-partisan initiatives to protect our land, water, forests and climate: Ontario Climate Emergency Campaign, 50 by 30, Yours To Protect, and the Reform Gravel Mining Coalition.
