For Our Kids Toronto

Toronto - Kids Area @ Global March to End Fossil Fuels

This event has already taken place.

For Our Kids Toronto will be hosting a Kids and Family Area at the Global March to End Fossil Fuels - Toronto at Queen’s Park on Saturday, Sep. 16.

Here’s what to expect at the Kids and Family Area. Babies and kids of all ages are welcome!

Our event will be one of many global events demanding an end to fossil fuels - fast, fair and forever – in the lead-up to the UN Climate Talks and as part of the Global Fight to End Fossil Fuels. After a summer of heatwaves, massive wildfires, floods, and extreme weather events, it is clear that the fossil-fuel driven climate crisis is accelerating. 

But as the climate crisis accelerates, so does the movement for climate justice. The Global March to End Fossil Fuels on September 16th presents an opportunity to make our voices heard loud and clear.

Join us as we call out the fossil fuel industry for its role in driving the crisis and blocking real action, while raking in record profits.

Join us as we demand that elected leaders commit to a rapid and equitable phase-out of fossil fuels in line with the goal of limiting warming to 1.5C and preserving a liveable future.

Together we can demand that here in Ontario the government cancel its plans for gas-plant expansion and invest in clean renewable energy.

We would like to acknowledge that our event, which coincides with the global weekend of climate action ahead of the UN Climate week, occurs during Rosh Hashanah. We understand that many people observing Rosh Hashanah will not be able to attend the march. Here are some alternative actions for people to take instead:
